Basin voters turned out in record numbers. According to Uintah County Clerk/Auditor Mike Wilkins, Uintah County voter turnout as of Monday was at 90.49 percent. The last election with a comparable voter turnout was in 1988. The second largest voter turnout was in 1992 with a 72 percent turnout. In addition to mail in ballots, 1500 citizens voted on the electronic machines at the county building on Election Day. Wilkins also notes that 3 individuals attempted to vote twice but the system flagged their attempt and their vote only counted one time. Because voting twice is against the law, those individuals will be contacted by the County Attorney’s office. Uintah County Commissioner Mark Raymond said he doesn’t care how people voted, he is extremely pleased and proud of the community for just getting out and voting. Wilkins credits the switch to vote by mail and the presidential election with the high voter turnout.
