OREM, Utah (AP) -- Utah County may face a political makeover this election year as several new candidates enter the race.
The deadline to file to run for office expired yesterday, and the list of candidates for Utah County shows a large number of political newbies.
All 24 of the county's incorporated cities will choose a mayor this year, but just 14 of those cities will have an incumbent running for re-election.
The turnover rate could be even higher at the city council level, where only 24 incumbents filed to run for a total of 52 city council seats that will be available across the county.
Primary elections, if necessary, will be held on October fourth, The general election will be November eighth.
