About 85% of Cache County’s 55,126 registered voters turned in their ballots for the general election in 2016. As of Tuesday afternoon, 38,000 of the county’s 62,670 mail-in ballots had been returned.

“We were at 60% (voter turnout) last night, with 2,000 ballots unscanned,” County Clerk Jess Bradfield said Tuesday. “We anticipate, potentially, another 10,000 ballots today, so that would put us on par for 80-85% voter turnout.”

And there were a handful of people lined up at the Cache County Event Center before the polls opened at 7 a.m. Since then, Bradfield said there hadn't been fewer than 50 people in the building to vote at any given moment.

As of 8:45 p.m., Cache County reported a voter turnout of just over 70%.

“Thousands of people have come through voting center, but they've been so respectful, and so many first-time voters have come to cast their vote and get registered the same day,” Bradfield said. “No matter what tomorrow brings, I hope people can remember the unity today in coming together to vote in Cache County.”
