Incumbents take the Primary Election for Senate District 28, House District 72

SOUTHERN UTAH — Voters overwhelmingly retained the familiar in Utah’s Republican Primary Elections for state Senate District 28 and state House of Representatives District 72 Tuesday, nominating the incumbents in both seats, Sen.  Evan J. Vickers and Rep. John Westwood, Monday.

There is no contender for District 28, so Vickers will take the seat uncontested for another four years. Westwood will run against Libertarian candidate Barry Evan Short in November’s General Election.

The Iron County Clerk’s Office reported an 18.25 percent Republican voter turnout in Iron County for the Primary Election.

Preliminary results reported do not include provisional ballots and are subject to canvass and certification by the clerks of the reporting county precincts. As qualified, the results for Senate District 28 and House District 72 are:

    Not once since I became a registered voter, have I received a primary or general election ballot. It should come in the mail before every election. I’ve also never been told where my polling place is. What is with you guys? Do you want voters or not. I can’t even find the voter registration office in Cedar City. And you want a good voter turnout?
