Jul 7, 2020


The Wasatch County clerk released updated unofficial results from the June 30 primary election on Tuesday morning. With the additional votes, incumbent Kendall Crittenden won the Republican Primary for Wasatch County Council Heber South Seat over challenger Elizabeth Hokanson. 

 

Crittenden won 439 votes compared to Hokanson’s 412. No candidates in other parties have registered for the seat, meaning Crittenden will be unopposed on November’s ballot. 

 

After the election, Crittenden thanked supporters for their trust. Crittenden said he will continue to listen, study the issues and attend to the duties of his office. 

 

The updated totals did not change any previously reported results for the county. Mike Kohler won the Republican primary for State House District 54 and will face off against Democrat Meaghan Miller in the November General Election. 

 

On Monday, the Associated Press declared Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox the winner of the four-way Republican Primary for Utah Governor. Wasatch County, however, slightly preferred former governor Jon Huntsman. Huntsman won 37% of the primary vote in the county, with Cox winning 35%, Former Utah Speaker of the House Greg Hughes earned 19% of the vote, while Thomas Wright captured 6%. 

 

The official canvass of the election will take place on July 21.
