Mail-in ballots have been coming in at a steady pace

Utah’s primary election is coming up on Tuesday, June 28 and Cache County Clerk Jill Zollinger has a reminder for voters. She says in order for your ballot to count, have it post marked no later than midnight on Monday, June 27th.

Zollinger says the ballots have been coming in steadily and she has decided Cache County people like the mail-in vote.

“It’s interesting because I think with the by-mail (voting) it brings out more interest because they are getting that ballot in the mail,” says Zollinger. “A lot of time, this time of the year, people aren’t thinking about voting.

“They are thinking about a vacation, or that family reunion they’re going to, or different things like that. I think it does bring that awareness and hopefully more people will participate.”

Zollinger says no elections will be decided Tuesday but in three different races one candidate will be selected to run against another candidate in the November election. In Cache County, there is just one primary race and that is for the Logan Council #1 seat on the Cache County Council.

Republicans Karl Ward and Casey Saxton are trying to replace Cory Yeates who is leaving the council after this year. There is also a contest between Governor Gary Herbert and fellow Republican Jonathan Johnson.
