And a silver lining to so many Utahns getting their ballots in early?— Ben Winslow (@BenWinslow) November 3, 2020
It means we will have much more complete #ElectionNight results in Utah!
Obviously, the close races are going to take some time (up to 2 weeks counting under the law). @fox13 #utpol #Election2020 pic.twitter.com/l2JAVWuTei

Ballot box problem reported in Salt Lake County. Residents reminded to push ballots all the way down.
FYI: When putting your ballots into drop boxes in Salt Lake County, please make sure you push the ballot all the way down into the box!— Salt Lake County Elections (@VoteSLCo) November 3, 2020
This morning there was a report that the ballot drop box at Herriman City Hall was full. This was not accurate. (1/2)
(2/2) When our team emptied the dropbox, we found 865 ballots inside. The drop box holds about 1900 ballots. The issue was that ballots were not pushed all the way in and were sticking out; creating the look of an overflowing ballot drop box. Thanks to all for voting by-mail!— Salt Lake County Elections (@VoteSLCo) November 3, 2020

The turnout numbers in Utah County are coming in, where they expect about 10 percent of eligible voters to head to the polls today. But that's just a small part of those who have voted overall.
#UtahCounty had about 75% voter turnout for the 2016 election... deputy clerk says they are expecting to exceed that. 80% voter turnout. People who are voting in person today should prepare for a line during peak times. Next rush is expected this evening. #Election2020— Sydney Glenn (@SydneyGlennTV) November 3, 2020
