Utah residents saw a nonbinding opinion question on their ballot alongside three propositions.

Residents voted in favor of Proposition 2 which will legalize medical marijuana. 53% voted for the proposition with 46% of Utahns voting against.

Proposition 3 also was passed. The proposition will expand Medicaid coverage to more Utahns. 54% of Utahns voted for with 45% voted against.

Proposition 4 is too close to call. If passed the proposition  would create an independent redistricting commission to prevent gerrymandering is the final proposition on Utahns ballots. As of this report 50.29% of Utahns voted for Prop 4 with 49.71% voting against.

Provisional ballots and other potentially incomplete reporting by any of Utah's 29 county clerks offices mean that extremely close races such as Prop 4 are too close to call.
