Clerk / Auditor

https://kane.utah.gov/gov/dept/clerk-auditor/2018-primary-election-Official Canvass Results/ 

 

Hi all,

 I want to take a minute and let all the voters know what precautions and safety measurers we have implemented in the 2018 Kane County Primary Election.  

First; all county clerks in the state of Utah are on the ballot this year.   When we have opposition we do not count the ballots.   As your County Clerk, I do not even touch a ballot (except to vote my own.)   I don’t help in early voting, by-mail processing, or on Election Day.  It is tough because I am a worker and to sit back and let others work is hard.  

Second: we lock all the ballots and all equipment to count the ballots into the vault at night. A Deputy Sheriff seals the vault and records the number of the security seal.  The following morning the Deputy Sheriff verifies that the seal is intact and has not been tampered with.

Third: we have brought in an outside election judge every day to work all day from the opening of the vault to the closing of the vault as the ballots are processed.  All staff leave the office together. 

Fourth: we have a Deputy Sheriff in attendance when ballots are opened, counted and recorded.      

The last three items are extra precautions and safety measures that have been implemented to protect the County Taxpayers due to unfounded rumors and innuendo.

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT A:

Shall the Utah Constitution be amended to modify the period of time that a person in the military needs to serve out of

state under an order to federal active duty in order to qualify for a property tax exemption for the military person's

residence, allowing the military person to qualify if the period of service is at least 200 days in a continuous 365-day

period?

      FOR

      AGAINST

 

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT B:

Shall the Utah Constitution be amended to authorize the creation of a property tax exemption for real property, such as

land or buildings, that the state or a local government entity leases from a private owner?

      FOR

      AGAINST

 

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT C:

Shall the Utah Constitution be amended to:

•    authorize the Legislature to convene into a limited session if two-thirds of the Utah Senate and House members

      agree that convening is necessary because of a fiscal crisis, war, natural disaster, or emergency in the affairs of

      the state;

•    require the Governor to reduce state expenditures or convene the Legislature into session if state expenses will

      exceed revenue for a fiscal year; and

•    require a session of the Legislature, other than the 45-day annual general session, to be held at the state capitol,

      unless it is not feasible due to a specified condition?

      FOR

      AGAINST

 

NONBINDING OPINION QUESTION #1:

Potential Gas Tax Increase for Public Education and Local Roads To provide additional funding for public education

and local roads, should the state increase the state motor and special fuel tax rates by an equivalent of 10 cents per

gallon?

 

PROPOSITION NUMBER 2:

Shall a law be enacted to:

•    establish a state-controlled process that allows persons with certain illnesses to acquire and use medical cannabis

      and, in certain limited circumstances, to grow up to six cannabis plants for personal medical use;

•    authorize the establishment of facilities that grow, process, test, or sell medical cannabis and require those

      facilities to be licensed by the state; and

•    establish state controls on those licensed facilities, including:

        o              electronic systems that track cannabis inventory and purchases; and

        o              requirements and limitations on the packaging and advertising of cannabis and on the types of products 

                      allowed?

 

The Governor's Office of Management and Budget estimates the law proposed by this initiative would result in total fiscal

expenses of $2,900,000 ($1,800,000 ongoing and $1,100,000 one-time).

 

Fee collections would cover about $1,400,000 of ongoing costs.  General state revenues would be required for remaining

 ongoing costs ($400,000 and all onetime costs ($1,100,000).

 

Under the proposed sales tax exemption, the state and local governments may initially forego $1,600,000 in sales tax revenue. 

Foregone revenue could increase over time if consumption and taxable sales increase in the later years following

implementation. 

 

Consumer and firm behavior different than assumed would alter these estimates.

 

In addition, the cost of posting information regarding the initiative in Utah's statewide newspapers and for printing the additional

pages in the voter information packet is estimated at $30,000 in one-time funds.

 

 

 

 

 

PROPOSITION NUMBER 3:

Shall a law be enacted to:

•    expand the state Medicaid health coverage program to include coverage, based on income, for previously 

      ineligible low-income adults;

•    maintain the following as they existed on January 1, 2017:

        o     eligibility standards, benefits, and patient costs for Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program

               (CHIP); and

        o      the payment rate for healthcare providers under Medicaid and CHIP; and

•    use the tax increase described below to pay for Medicaid and CHIP?

     This  initiative seeks to increase the current state sales tax rate by 0.15%, resulting in a 3.191% increase in the current tax rate.

 

The Governor's Office of management and Budget estimates that this proposed initiative would, in fiscal year 2021 (upon full

phase-in of the Federal Affordable Care Act):

 

•  Result in new state fiscal expenses of about $77,000,000 for Medicaid services

 

•  Increase state sales taxes by about $90,000,000 by increasing the state sales tax rate by 0.15%, from 4.70% to

   4.85% (a 3.2% increase from the current tax rate).

 

Beyond FY 2021, costs could outpace new revenue depending on actual cost and revenue trajectories.  Estimates could vary with

changes in federal law, federal funding, taxpayer behavior and Medicaid recipient behavior, among other factors.

 

In addition, the cost of posting information regarding the proposed initiative in Utah's statewide newspapers and for printing

additional pages in the voter information pamphlet is estimated at $30,000 in one-time funds.

 

PROPOSITION NUMBER 4:

Shall a law be enacted to:

•    create a seven-member commission to recommend redistricting plans to the Legislature that divide the state into

      Congressional, legislative, and state school board districts;

•    provide for appointments to that commission: one by the Governor, three by legislative majority party leaders,

      and three by legislative minority party leaders;

•    provide qualifications for commission members, including limitations on their political activity;

•    require the Legislature to enact or reject a commission-recommended plan; and

•    establish requirements for redistricting plans and authorize lawsuits to block implementation of a redistricting plan

      enacted by the Legislature that fails to conform to those requirements?

 

The Governor's Office of Management and Budget estimates that the law proposed by this initiative would result in a total fiscal

expense of approximately $1 million.

 

In addition, the cost of posting information regarding the initiative in Utah's statewide newspapers and for printing the additional

pages in the voter information packet is estimated at $30,000 in one-time funds.
