Voter Turnout High? Or Low?

How was voter turnout in Utah this election year?  Utah's director of elections says it may top out at 80%.  In Summit County it was 85%, while Wasatch County saw 75% turnout.   But how elections officials base those percentages tells a different story.  Compared to the rest of the nation, Utah is the third-lowest state in terms of voter turnout with only 49% of the eligible voting population casting a ballot.  KPCW's Renai Bodley has more.
