SALT LAKE CITY — State elections officials are reporting 111,576 outstanding ballots meaning many races are still too close to call.

The bulk of the ballots are in Salt Lake, Davis and Weber counties which could impact close races like the one between Spencer Cox and Jon Huntsman Jr. (Greg Hughes and Thomas Wright conceded the race earlier in the day Wednesday).

Here's the breakdown of outstanding ballots from the Utah State Elections Office:

The latest totals released by the State Elections Office show Co with a lead over Huntsman. But as FOX 13's Max Roth reports, there is still room for Huntsman to close the gap.

The results could also impact the very close 1st Congressional District GOP primary.
