The primary election in Northern Utah includes mayoral and city council races across Weber, Davis and Box Elder counties. This guide gives information about candidates on the ballot. Voting is being conducted via mail-in balloting, with in-person voting set for Aug. 13.

Voters may select as many candidates as there are open seats when voting in the Primary Election. The number of candidates that will move on to the General Election in each race is double the amount of seats that are available.
