Under the direction of the Cedar Hills city recorder and city council, a canvass of the general election results will be conducted at the regularly scheduled city council meeting on November 17 in the Cedar Hills Community Recreation Center. The canvass will be conducted based on election data received from the Utah County Clerk’s Office, which administered the city’s all vote-by-mail general election and counted and tallied all Cedar Hills ballots. The outcome of the general election will not be official until the canvass is completed.

The purpose of the canvass is to account for every ballot cast and ensure that every valid vote is included in the election totals. This involves accounting for every absentee (vote-by-mail) ballot, every ballot cast on Election Day, every provisional ballot, and every overseas and military ballot cast by absentee. The official results of the canvass will be posted on the Cedar Hills website.
