FARMINGTON -- Layton Proposition 2 and Proposition 3 still failed, and Davis County Commissioner John Petroff Jr. still won, according to an official canvass of the 2012 general election by county election workers.
"I know it's an honest count," Petroff said, crediting the quality of the work done by the county staff and poll workers.
On Tuesday, Davis County Election Director Pat Beckstead presented the official Nov. 6 election canvass to the commission for adoption.
The canvass, which revealed no change in the outcome of any of the races in the county, took all county contests into account, including the two Layton city propositions to create and apply a new zone for the development of the West Layton Village concept.
The canvass revealed 121,946 Davis residents cast ballots in the election, a voting percentage of 77.23 percent, Beckstead said.
Of those, 34,965 were straight-party voting in favor of Republican Party candidates, the canvass showed.
In comparison, 9,204 Davis voters cast a straight Democratic Party ticket, while 497 cast a straight Libertarian Party ballot.
There are no Democrats holding a county partisan office.
The only Democratic candidate to receive more than 30 percent of the total votes cast in their respective race was Davis County Commission Democratic candidate Steven J. Andersen, of Farmington, who received more than 31 percent of the vote in his challenge of Petroff.
Beckstead said the county had one official write-in for U.S. president and two official write-ins in the Utah governor's race.
The closest races of the election night in Davis County were the two Layton propositions, which were both turned back by a 51.5 to 48.5 percent margin.
"It's been a crazy time for us," Beckstead said.
She said within a two-month period the county added 10,000 registered voters to its rolls, taking it from 147,000 to 157,000 registered voters, which is an all-time high.
Davis County Clerk/Auditor Steve Rawlings said, "Davis County shined in my eyes."
