SALT LAKE CITY -- Voters headed to the polls November 7 to cast their votes in municipal elections. Here are preliminary results for some of the races across the state:
- Voters are saying yes to four out of six school bond proposals so far.
In early voting results, the Granite plan was passing Tuesday night with 55 percent of the vote, while the Canyons bid had 56 percent. Proposals in Weber and Morgan school districts were also ahead Tuesday, with Ogden and South Summit trailing behind.
- Sandy Mayor Tom Dolan has lost re-election to Kurt Bradburn. Dolan served as the suburban city's mayor for 24 years.
- Incumbent mayors in West Jordan, Taylorsville, Riverton and Sandy have lost re-election as well.
- Draper, West Valley City, South Salt Lake and Murray's mayors were poised to be re-elected.
- In Hildale, Donia Jessop was ahead in returns against Phil Barlow. If elected, Jessop would be the polygamous border town's first woman and ex-FLDS member.
- Michelle Kaufusi is leading in the race to be Provo's first-ever female mayor. Early voting numbers showed her ahead of Sherrie Hall Everett.
- In the Salt Lake City Council races, Chris Wharton, Amy Fowler and Erin Mendenhall appeared poised for victory.
- Blanding will remain a "dry" town. By a vote of 573-299, the southeastern Utah community rejected a ballot question to sell beer and wine within city limits.
In an interview with FOX 13 on Wednesday, Dolan said he was surprised to lose, but OK with it.
"Retirement looks pretty good right now," he said. "It's good. I spend more time with my grandkids and my wife."
Dolan said he was proud of his record as mayor and still intended to stay active.
"We can look back on a lot of great things," he said. "I'm not one of those people who looks back at life. I look forward."
In Utah County, there are 22,000 uncounted ballots. Some of those will impact the hotly contested Provo mayoral race between Michelle Kaufusi and Sherrie Hall Everett.
Everett was not conceding the race.
"We are still not down. This is just the first count," she said in a Facebook video posted to her supporters on Tuesday night.
Kaufusi was optimistic Tuesday night that she would maintain her lead. The election is historic. It's the first time ever in Provo's history a woman has run for mayor, and a woman will be elected.
"I come from a family of strong women," Kaufusi told FOX 13. "I want to pave the way for every other little girl to not think this is out of touch, out of reach. It's in our reach now."
