Gov. Gary Herbert and Overstock.com Chairman Jonathan Johnson are competing to claim the Republican nomination for governor. The governor's race is one of only two statewide races in Utah's June primaries.
• The election: The primary is June 28, and the victor of the Republican race will advance to the November general election to face four other candidates: Democrat Mike Weinholtz; Libertarian Brian E. Kamerath; Independent Dell Schanze; and an unaffiliated, write-in candidate, L.S. Brown.
• The vote: More than 920,000 vote-by-mail ballots hit Utahns' mailboxes this week. Twenty of the state's 29 counties opted for by-mail elections this year, making up 73 percent of the state's 1.3 million registered voter population.
• Republicans: Only registered Republicans may vote in Herbert and Johnson's contest because the GOP holds closed primaries.
• Information: Visit vote.utah.gov or contact your county clerk for more information about voting-by-mail or in-person polling locations that will be open on June 28.
