Scope and Content

This series of booklets provides lists of registered voters in Wasatch County for the primary and general elections of 1960. There is a booklet for each of the fourteen election districts in the county. Each booklet records the voter's name, date of registration, ballot number, age, and state of birth. A column is present for address but was rarely used.

Voters were required by state law to register before being permitted to vote. Voters registered with the county clerk, or, if within a month before the election, with a registration agent appointed by the board of county commissioners. The clerk compiled the official register from a list of all voters who voted at least once in the past two years. The registration agents updated the register and turned it over to the election judges to record ballot numbers on the day of election. The register was then returned to the county clerk for comparison when canvassing the election. Thereafter, the register was to be filed in the clerk's office for use in preparing a new register for the next election.

Processing Note

The 1983 schedule calls for registers of years ending in six to be microfilmed and destroyed, with other years being discarded. The registers present included those between 1955 and 1963, but 1956 was missing. Therefore, the 1960 registers were saved as a sample with the others discarded. Processed by A. C. Cone in 1989.
