Logan city officials utilized a new feature in City Hall during Tuesday night’s elections when they used projectors to show two large colored maps at the front of the council chambers to illustrate how various voting precincts were voting.The maps (and election results in general) also were available online at
<a href=”http://www.loganutah.org”>the city’s Web site</a>
and they provide an interesting look at how candidates fared in various areas of town.
<strong>Mayoral race map</strong>
The map for the mayoral race shows that Mike Morrill actually won most of the geographic area of the city, but higher turnout in the bench areas played into Watts’ favor at the end of the night. Morrill won nine of 14 voting locations.
<strong>Council race map</strong>
Another interesting trend was found in the council map. Dean Quayle dominated in the northwestern quarters of town, which is where he lives. Holly Daines, a Cliffside resident, won her neighborhood and the Island neighborhood, as well as the affluent Lundstrom Park areas. Daines also pulled out a win in the southwest part of town, a town represented up until now by Tami Pyfer, the outgoing councilwoman who threw her endorsement behind Daines (and Quayle.)Wegener, meanwhile, pulled out wins in the Adams Park neighborhood, home of the controversial park strip reclamation issue, and the southwest central part of town, which is where his business sits.
