SALT LAKE'S BEST OF THE '90S TO NOW
 
 

'Count My Vote' Petition Drive is Officially Underway

Our Utah election system will undergo a radical overhaul, if 'Count My Vote' petition drive organizers get their way.

The change would do away with the clout of state conventions and caucuses, by forcing candidates into primary elections...where individual voters can choose who advances.

The system would be similar to what is already in place in 44 states.

The statewide petition drive now must gather 102,000 signatures -- across 26 of our state's 29 senate districts -- before the April 15, 2014 deadline.
