A Utah Policy analysis finds that nearly 3% of the Salt Lake County Republicans who voted in the Presidential primary did not cast a ballot in the Salt Lake County Mayor's contest.
78,131 votes were cast in the presidential primary, but only 75,755 in the contest between Crockett and Winder, which Crockett won by just over 1,000 votes. It's not a sure thing that these undervotes would have changed the outcome, but it is significant that the number of voters who failed to cast a ballot was more than double the winning margin.
