Low turnout expected for Primary Election Day
(KUTV) Tomorrow is primary election day in Utah and the turnout is likely going to be very low.

There are no big headliner racers. No candidates have even run TV ads.

All 75 Utah House members and half of the state senate are up for reelection but there are only seven primaries.

In Orem, Dana Layton is trying to hold her seat against former representative Brad Daw. Daw says he lost last time because of an anonymous negative campaign ad.

In a Salt Lake County democratic primary, former county auditor Jeff Hatch faces fellow Democrat Christopher Stout.

As for the Republicans, incumbent auditor Kevin Jacobs hopes to secure the nomination over Jake Parkinson.
