Two Open Seats
Based on the addresses listed on utahsenate.org, there will be two open seat districts. They are:
- Cottonwood Heights area of Salt Lake County
- Spanish Fork/Payson area of Utah County
The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Pat Jones and Karen Morgan were mapped into the same district, but my research doesn't show this. The addresses listed on utahsenate.org places Pat Jones in the same district as Ross Romero and it has Karen Morgan in the same district as Wayne Niederhauser. I'm not sure who is correct here (the addresses could be wrong or I may have read the map wrong), so maybe someone can show me where I'm wrong. Again, here are the incumbents who were placed in the same district:
- Patricia Jones and Ross Romero
- Karen Morgan and Wayne Niederhauser
The images below show the maps. The green circle means it is an open seat, the blue line means there is more than one incumbent living in that district.
