We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Primary Election Results: Live!



Throughout the night, watch this post for updates about the primary election results.---

8:20 p.m.: Polls have closed at 8 p.m., so results are only just trickling in. According to the Utah Elections Office less than one percent of precincts have reported statewide. With the electronic voting machines, results can be expected as early as 10 p.m. and as late as midnight. Here's what I do know, mostly anecdotal from Twitter posts and news reports: turn-out was really low, and may run at about 10 percent. So that means expected cakewalks for people like Rep. Jim Matheson may be a lot harder ... but it could also mean (and often does) that grassroots support for a candidate like Claudia Wright doesn't translate to voters at the booths, and only party faithful voted.%uFFFD

8:54 p.m.: The Giants beat the Astros today. That's all for now. Only 2% of precincts reporting.

9 p.m.: I launched a real live blog through CoverItLive. I'm hoping the web server for works, but if it's not I'm also running it on my personal website,
