Utah sees gradual uptick in voter turnout
SALT LAKE CITY — It’s the last weekend before the election and voter turnout is slowly ticking up.
As of Thursday afternoon, the state sits at around 21% of active registered voters who’ve turned in ballots. That equates to more than 37,000 ballots.
On Tuesday, only 12% of ballots were turned in, so Utah has doubled turnout in less than a week.
Wayne, Garfield, Piute, and Kane Counties hold some of the highest turnouts as of Thursday. Six counties including Salt Lake are under 20% turnout.
Clerks typically expect about half of the ballots to come in between this weekend and Election Day Tuesday.
