SALT LAKE CITY — Utahns turned out in massive numbers to vote in the 2020 election, according to data released by Governor-elect Spencer Cox and the state elections office.
The Board of Canvassers met on Monday to certify the results of the election. But Lt. Governor (and now Governor-elect) Cox reported a figure that was jaw-dropping: over 90% turnout among active, registered voters across the state. It's an all-time high.
