Is there a way to get the count of items chosen in a select field

trying to take a field that has a list of customers and be able to query for only issues where the number of customers is greater than 1. The field will also have null values at times

Try using multiuser picker field to store list of customers and calculated field (provided by ScriptRunner) with this script to store it count

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.fields.CustomField

/**
 * Get number of users for multiuser picker
 */
CustomField multiuserCstFld = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager().getCustomFieldObjectByName("FieldName")
if (multiuserCstFld == null)
    return "custom field not found"

return "" + ((ArrayList) multiuserCstFld.getValue(issue)).size()

I've tried this on the 'Components' field and receive an error:

"custom field not found"

Does this not work on OOTB fields?
