Sherrie Swensen, Salt Lake County Clerk, directs the Election, Marriage, Passport and Council Clerk Divisions for Salt Lake County.

Ms. Swensen believes in the fundamental right of all citizens to vote and, to that end, encourages voter participation by making the process as easy and accessible as possible. Since becoming County Clerk, Ms. Swensen has vigorously pursued voter registration efforts, encouraging all citizens to exercise their important right to vote.

As part of this effort, she implemented the “High School Voter Registration Program” and has annually conducted voter registration drives and encouraged student involvement in the electoral process.  She established the countertop display boxes for mail-in voter registration forms. These displays appear in locations countywide, including post-offices, libraries and college campuses. Ms. Swensen also conducts voter registration drives at community events, conferences and business gatherings. She established the “Senior Tour,” visiting senior citizen centers throughout the County, registering voters and encouraging participation in permanent vote by mail.
