A big thank you to those who took the time and made the effort to run for city council. We all benefitted from your contributions. Congratulations to Brittney Bills, Kim Rodela, and Tim Ball who will be sworn in on Tuesday January 7th, 2020.
Below are charts summarizing the results for the city plus a chart showing the turnout for cities in Utah County. Our turnout (35%)was slightly above the average for the county (33.8%). Congratulations to the Highland 7th precinct for having the best turnout (44.3%). the 6th (40.5%) and 2nd (37.6%) precincts were 2nd and 3rd.

The two cities (Payson & Vineyard) that used ranked choice voting ranked 16th and 17th out of 21 cities in terms of turnout. One generalization is that high growth rate cities have lower turnout rates. Fairfield, which elected 1 mayor and 3 town council members, had an 81% turnout (77 of out 95 registered voters turned in ballots).
