Primary (read: registered Republicans) take note: primary season is upon us! The staff at the Tribune break it down:
Voters throughout Utah go to the polls [today] to winnow the number of city council and mayoral candidates who will run in November’s general election.
Tuesday’s primary includes two high-profile council races in Salt Lake City. The race in east-side District 6 has been defined by controversy over a rejected rezoning for a Walmart and how best to preserve the historic character of the Yalecrest neighborhood.
Meanwhile, voters in west-side District 2 were targeted by an anonymous mailer that made accusations of religious bigotry.
In Ogden, eight people are vying to fill the mayor’s seat after Matthew Godfrey decided against seeking re-election.
Voting locations will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Voting shenanigans in District 2 aside (more on that later), it looks like a good, clean fight all around..
If you have questions about your polling place or if you fear dirty tricks are a foot, this is a good place to find resources (phone numbers, names of officials, etc.) if you want to check into it. Go vote, pretty please.
