Voter records (lists) are considered public record and are available upon request. The following fields are protected and are not released to any one requesting a general voter list: Social Security Number, Driver’s License number, Utah ID number, email address, full date of birth, and your signature.
Voters may choose to have their record made private. The record of a private voter is not available to the general public, but can be obtained by governmental entities, political parties and candidates. This includes their contractors, employees, and volunteers and must be used in accordance with the requirements of the law. The following fields are protected and are not released to any one requesting a list containing private voters: Social Security Number, Driver’s License number, Utah ID number, email address, day and month of birth, and your signature.
A voter may change their private voter status at any time by going to voter.utah.gov and completing section 10 of the registration form.
A voter may request that all information on your voter registration records be withheld from the general public by submitting a withholding request form, and any required verification, with this registration form, or to the Office of the Utah Lieutenant Governor or a county clerk. As of July 2023, political parties may request non-identifying information such as address, vote history and age.

A person who is a victim, or is likely to be victim, of domestic violence or dating violence.
Law enforcement officers
Individuals protected by protective or protection orders.
