It appears the Count My Vote / Buy My Vote Group has decided their idea of bypassing the caucus / convention system was a bad idea.
they want to ruin our primary system. If you change the way our Utah
primary's work as they are proposing, you could have two republicans in the
general election ballot (or two democrats).
Much of the state there will
just be republicans and part of Salt Lake County, just democratic
candidates on the General Election ballot. And this is a good idea?
They are going to poll everyone to see which bad idea we like. What do you bet they just poll 400 of us and call it good. How about running changes past the parties or at least the legislature? The states that are ruled by polls typically are ruled by Debt.
If the voters figure this out, none will sign on to this idea.
We have a system that that does NOT favor
or famous. This is a good thing.
Keep Fair Elections in Utah. Our Caucus and Conventions system.
PS, if they want to really help voter participation, we have some ideas, if they have the guts to try.
