Category: Political Data Type: Polygon GIS data Stewards: UGRC & Lieutenant Governor's Office

Voting precincts determine a voter's ballot composition and polling location based on the boundaries of all political districts covering their address (U.S Congress, State House and Senate, state school board, municipal districts, special districts, etc) in conjunction with a legislatively-mandated maximum limit of voters per precinct.

This dataset drives many of the State's voter information pages and lookups.

A closer look

Vista Ballot Areas are voting precincts for all 29 counties in Utah. Precincts boundaries are submitted by County Clerk offices. Where precincts are split into formal subprecincts, only the subprecincts are included in this dataset. A 'Dissolve' operation on the PRECINCTID field will produce precinct polygons without subprecinct lines. Updates are done to the precincts periodically, corresponding with Annexations and city/town boundary changes.
