SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4) — While Utah voter turnout does not appear to be as high as the 2018 midterm at this point, elections officials are still reporting a decent turnout.
Utah Deputy Director of Elections Shelly Jackson said on Friday the state reported 22.5% of ballots have been sent in. Jackson said that is roughly 10 to 15 points lower than 2018. She said in 2018, Utah had a lot of propositions on the ballot including medical marijuana as well as constitutional amendments and a redistricting initiative.
That being said, Jackson said Utah could reach as high as 50% of ballots getting sent in by Election Day.
