Utah primary

We are still out in the field, at this point taking a coffee/Internet break. Hopefully folks are following our progress at twitter.com. Lonna Atkeson (University of New Mexico) has joined Thad and I this afternoon, as we headed to Box Elder and Davis Counties. So far we have visited twelve polling places in three counties, and despite the fact that turnout in this primary election is very slight, we are learning a lot about how elections are run here in Utah. We’ll be back out to some more polling places this afternoon and evening, and will be studying poll closing and initial tabulation procedures this evening.
