PROVO, Utah — A new record turnout for voting in Utah County was set by noon Tuesday.

The Utah County Clerk says in 2016, they had 205,000 people cast a ballot, which was a record. So far Tuesday, 219,000 people have voted.

Poll workers at one Provo location say it’s been steady since it opened at 7:00 a.m.

Here’s how in-person voting is working in Utah County:
Voters reserve a spot virtually. Once they arrive, they get a paper with instructions. Once notified, each voter will go inside, get a ballot and take it outside to fill it out. Then they drop off the ballot and they're done.

Lines are building but moving along fairly well.

A poll worker said he and many of his other young friends decided to volunteer as poll workers this year so the older people, who usually volunteer, could stay home this year.
