It’s essentially official which city council candidates will be moving on to the November general election, after the Utah County Clerk updated final election numbers Thursday for its municipal primary election.

Cities that had city council primary elections have to have results finalized by two weeks after Election Day, and most city councils will finalize the results at meetings Tuesday night.

During the last results update, several races were too close to call, particularly in Santaquin and Lehi, where the difference between moving on to the general election or not were separated by fewer than 20 votes.

The top six candidates in each race will move on to a primary, other than the district races in Provo, which will see two candidates advance.

A total of 38,173 votes were cast countywide, for a 24.08% voter turnout.
