my online "find your district" told me I'm in 20/8 for Utah Legislature -- my polling place told me 19/8 for Utah Legislature ... I wonder which is right, and is this significant? I got to vote for Courtney C. White, which I didn't think would happen

A reminder from one of our gentle readers: "Be sure you check your vote before you hit the final button. Some in Florida are reporting the wrong candidate came up with electronic voting."
