Elections

Changes in local election laws are being contemplated by a committee convened by Utah's Lieutenant Governor. But dramatic changes - like allowing all-mail voting, aren't in the cards yet, according to County Clerk Kent Jones. Rick Brough has more.

To all appearances, last weekend's Republican and Democratic state conventions could be the last round for Utah's caucus and convention system as we know it. A bill in the recent legislature altered the process for candidates to get on a primary ballot.

But Summit County's Democratic and GOP party chairs think the caucus system might still be basically unchanged. Rick Brough has more.

The election is more than a year away, but there will be a contest in 2014 for Summit County Attorney. Former Third District Court Judge  says he plans to run for the job, as a Democrat. And incumbent County Attorney, David Brickey, a Republican, says he will be asking voters for a third term.

Besides Park City, the only other primary election contest in the county yesterday took place in Coalville, where six candidates vied to run for Mayor. 

The candidate with the most voites in that contest led the pack by nearly 100 votes. But the second-place finisher, and three other candidates, were separated from each other by razor-thin margins. Rick Brough has more.

Early Voting

Aug 15, 2013

Early voting in Park City concluded Friday afternoon. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.

Preliminary election results are in for the Park City Council Race.

After the polls closed on Tuesday evening and votes were tallied, the four city council candidates who will proceed to the November general municipal election were determined as announced by senior recorder and election official Sharon Bauman..  Those are incumbents Alex Butwinski and Cindy Matsumoto, as well as political newcomers, Tim Henney and Mary Wintzer. 

Incumbent Park City council person Cindy Matsumoto says she’s seeking re-election because she finds being on city council challenging, exciting, and interesting, and that her experience and involvement in the community, make her a viable candidate. Lynn Ware Peek has more.  

Twenty-one-year Park City resident Tim Henney is one of six candidates vying for one of two seats on the Park City Council. He says he has the time and energy to serve and thinks he can kick-start a conversation to lead the town's evolution. KPCW's Leslie Thatcher has more.

Alex Butwinski says he should be elected to a second four year term on Park City Council because he has the experience, the involvement with the community, and the ability to help the Council finish the tasks they're working on. Rick Brough has more.

Early voting is underway for the Park City Council race, and the primary election will move four of the six candidates forward to the November elections. One of those vying for one of two council seats is longtime Park City resident and Bonanza Park property owner, Mary Wintzer. Lynn Ware Peek has more.
