A polling location at Trolley Square in Salt Lake is mostly empty at the start of voting on Tuesday, Nov. 7.

It's election day in Utah. More than 400 municipal races will be decided Tuesday night, in addition to ballot questions and bond referendums. 

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. To find your nearest polling location, go to Vote Utah

Voters in the 3rd District will finally have a new Congressional representative to fill the seat vacated by Jason Chaffetz, who resigned his seat in June to join Fox News. Republican John Curtis faces Democrat Kathie Allen and a host of third-party candidates in that race. 

A heated mayoral race in Draper will also determine whether incumbent Troy Walker gets another term. 

In Provo, voters will elect their first woman mayor in the city's history. Provo School Board member Michelle Kaufusi is running against UTA co-vice chair Sherrie Hall Everett. The winner will replace outgoing mayor John Curtis, who's running for Congress. 

Large turnover is expected on the Salt Lake City Council, where many incumbents are stepping down. Utahns will also have a chance to vote on several school bonds meant to repair and renovate aging schools in their district.
