In all 5,894 ballots have been processed of the more than 9,674 that were sent out to Wasatch County voters. Wasatch County Clerk Cal Griffiths says the county has ballots sit for a few hours before officials open them with gloves in order to prevent the spread of coronavirus to ballot counters. Ballots postmarked on Tuesday will be included in a later count.
