Utah Dems hold edge in early voting as wild election heads for finish line

Source: The Salt Lake Tribune

More than half a million Utahns already have cast their ballots as of Sunday, either in person or by mail, and, at this stage, Democrats hold a turnout advantage.

Not just statewide either. In each of Utah's four congressional districts, all represented by Republicans, and in all of the state's 29 counties, the percentage of Democrats voting early tops that of Republicans.

And polling shows Democrat Hillary Clinton leading Republican Donald Trump and independent Evan McMullin among votes already cast.,

That edge may not last, of course, in this GOP-dominated state.

2. If over 500,000 people have voted - that's over half of who voted in 2012.

5. Is that correct? Wow!

I would assume Utah turned out big for Mittens back in 2012. This could be indicator of a big Hillary wave in certain traditionally red states, maybe Arizona?

7. Not really. Only 55% of eligible voters turned out four years ago.

Utahns don't vote. I think it's a byproduct of living in such a heavily one-party state.

8. I have a bet with a friend of mine that

Trump will not win Utah and I made it before McMullen (lots of Mormon history in my family).

But I don't understand how we can have any leads, no matter how briefly in 4 Congressional Districts.

9. I think she probably has a lead because so many

Are voting third party in Utah. The last figures I saw said that an unusual number of people are voting third party in Utah this year.
