Cache County saw the highest voter turnout on record — 93.3% — after the official canvas results were released on Tuesday. There were 58,905 ballots counted from the 63,833 registered voters, and, as happens whenever voters aren’t a fan of either candidate, thousands of ballots featured write-in candidates — the highest in recent years.

“Write-in candidates are really a novelty in American politics,” said Damon Cann, a political science professor at Utah State University.
