SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - A Utah civil rights advocacy group is worried that not all elections officials are prepared for an upcoming new provision.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports Utah residents will be able to walk into polling places Nov. 6 and exercise a same-day registration option created earlier this year to clear away barriers to voting.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Utah on Thursday called on Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and the state elections office to make sure all county clerks offices are up to speed on the Election Day registration provision.

The ACLU recently surveyed clerks offices in eight Utah counties to gauge their level of familiarity with the new voting option. Brittney Nystrom, the group’s executive director, says the group was not pleased with their findings.
