Welcome to the headquarters for the No Stamp, No Problem campaign for the 2020 elections.
Did you know that only 11 of the 29 counties in Utah provide pre-paid postage for mail-in ballots?
This means hundreds of thousands of Utahns—including residents of Cache, Tooele, Washington and Weber counties—will receive ballots indicating they must affix a stamp to mail it back.
We believe this is an unfair barrier to voting.
This is why the ACLU of Utah is launching our 2020 No Stamp No Problem campaign!
Even if you live in a county that does not pre-pay postage for ballots, the U.S. Postal Service will deliver all unstamped ballots to county clerks and charge the county for the missing postage.
That’s why we call this campaign: No Stamp? No Problem.

Sound too good to be true? It's not.
The U.S. Postal Service has publicly stated that they will deliver any mail ballots, regardless of sufficient postage. Plus, the Office of the Lieutenant Governor of Utah, which runs elections in the state, confirms the “No Stamp, No Problem” pledge on their official election website, writing “Another option is to place your ballot in the mail without postage, and the Postal Service will still deliver your ballot to your county clerk’s office.”
We should also note that voters can return unstamped ballots to an official ballot drop box, usually located outside the county clerk’s office.
The No Stamp, No Problem campaign is especially important if you live in the following counties that do not provide pre-paid postage:
- Beaver County
- Box Elder County
- Cache County
- Carbon County
- Duchesne County
- Iron County
- Kane County
- Millard County
- Piute County
- Rich County
- Sanpete County
- Sevier County
- Summit County
- Tooele County
- Uintah County
- Wasatch County
- Washington County
- Weber County
