Ballots began arriving in mailboxes across the state this week, giving Utahns the chance to weigh in on one of the most pivotal presidential elections in modern memory — but that’s not the only important decision confronting local voters this year.

Friday at 11 a.m, a panel of guests joins RadioWest to break down Utah's 2020 ballot. Voters are choosing a new governor, and deciding if Attorney General Sean Reyes deserves a third team as the state's highest lawyer. All four congressional seats are in play, including the hotly contested 4th District, where Democrat Ben McAdams faces a tough test against Republican challenger Burgess Owens. And, once they get to the bottom of the ballot, Utahns will have to decide if money for education should be shared with other programs. It’s a lot to consider, so tune in on Friday as our team of experts walk us through it.
