  • Mayoral position (4-year term), January 2022 - January 2026
  • Two (2) City Council positions (4-year term), January 2022 - January 2026

The 2021 Municipal Primary Election will be held by mail on August 10, 2021. (UCA 20A-1-201.5)
The 2021 Municipal General Election will be held by mail on November 2, 2021. (UCA 20A-1-201)

Vote-by-Mail ballots will be mailed between July 20 - July 27 for the Primary Election. Each registered voter will be mailed a ballot with instructions. If you do not receive a ballot, you will need to call or visit the Davis County Clerk's office.

Political Campaign Signs

In keeping with the intentions and purpose of Kaysville City’s Sign Regulations to promote civic beauty and order, the following is a list of standards and regulations regarding the size and placement of campaign signs. Observing the following will help maintain streetscapes that are safe, functional, and attractive to both residents and visitors in the city while still enabling you to promote yourself as a candidate for public office.

  • Signs may be placed within Kaysville City limits any time prior to the election. To avoid public nuisance issues and as a matter of courtesy, please remove campaign signs as soon as possible following the election.
  • Signs must be placed on private property only. Signs cannot be placed on State or City owned property, on freeway ramps, power poles, street signs, regulatory signs, and cannot be placed in the park strip (the public right-of-way between the curb and sidewalk or 10 ft. behind the curb if there is no sidewalk). Signs may not be erected, constructed, or maintained upon any property without the consent of the owner or person entitled to possession of the property.
  • Signs may not be located within 150 feet of a building that is serving as a polling place for the election on Election Day. (UCA 20A-3A-501) A polling place means the physical place where ballots and absentee ballots are cast, which includes the City Office Building during the period in which absentee (vote by mail) ballots may be cast there.
  • No sign may exceed 32 square feet in size.
  • Freestanding signs are permitted and may not exceed 6 feet in height (the top of the sign shall not be more than 6 feet off the ground).
  • In the General Commercial, Central Commercial, and Light Industrial zones, signs may be displayed on a building wall but may not be placed higher than the wall of the building (no signs on a roof).
  • Signs may not constitute a safety hazard, obstruct view, or create a nuisance. To promote safety and ensure property visibility for traffic, signs should be no closer than 10 ft. to a driveway and are not allowed within the “clear vision triangle”:

Upon discovery of a sign which violates the provisions listed above, the City will remove said sign and keep it in storage until 30 days after the General Election. Candidates whose signs have been removed and placed in storage will be notified periodically by Kaysville City if he or she has signs in storage. These signs may be picked up for reuse by the candidate or designated representative. Signs not retrieved within 30 days of the General Election will be disposed of.

Electioneering

 “Electioneering” includes any oral, printed, or written attempt to persuade persons to refrain from voting or to vote for or vote against any candidate or issue. A polling place means the physical place where ballots and absentee ballots are cast which includes the City Office Building during the period in which absentee (vote by mail) ballots may be cast there. 

 On the day of any election, within a polling place or in any public area within 150 feet of the building where a polling place is located, a person may not:

  • Do any electioneering
  • Circulate cards or handbills of any kind 
  • Solicit signatures to any kind of petition
  • Engage in any practice that interferes or disrupts the administration of the polling place
  • Obstruct the doors at the polling place or prevent free access to and from the polling place
  • Remove a ballot from the polling place unless the poll worker is assisting a physically disabled voter outside the building
  • Solicit any voter to show his ballot

Canvass

The canvass is a meeting held by the legislative body holding the election. This is a City Council for City Elections, the Board for Special Districts, or the County Commission for County Elections. This meeting can be held as early as 7 days after an election or as late as 14 days after an election, and is open to the public. Contact your Election Official to determine the Canvass Date for your election.

Between election night and the day of the canvass, additional by-mail ballots and provisional ballots are processed, counted and added to the vote totals.

Public Demonstration of Voting EquipmentSponsors

Prior to each election, a public demonstration and logic and accuracy test must be conducted. This demonstration will be held at the Davis County Administration Building in Room 202 on the following dates:

  • General Election - October 8, 2021
