“We have had about 50 percent of the people we asked agree to fill out our forms,” said exit poll representative and university student Courtney Brinkerhoff. “So far it’s been neck and neck between Maile Wilson and John Black who have been within one vote of each other every hour.”
Brinkerhoff said she had been sitting outside of the elementary school in the cold wind since 7 a.m., and she will be there until 7 p.m. asking voters to fill out exit poll forms.
She said the exit polling helps the city to know the demographics of those who turned out to vote in today’s local elections.
Poll manager Marie Thurston said voters have been turning out in good numbers at the East Elementary voting station in Cedar City.
“We feel like they have been pretty good compared to other years,” Thurston said.
She said there are 11 voting stations in Iron County for today’s electoral race; nine voting stations in Cedar City, one in Enoch and one in Parowan.
KCSG will update with new information as numbers continue to come in.
