Repeal Senate Bill 54
SB 54 was a controversial state senate bill that put the Republican party at odds with itself. It allowed for a candidate to gather signatures to get their name placed and printed on the primary ballot. It replaces and/or bypasses the traditional and well loved caucus and convention system used by political parties to nominate candidates with a direct primary election.
You can let your legislators know that it was a mistake. It allows anyone with the funds to pay for signature collection. With sufficient signatures, that candidate gets their name entered into the primary and printed on the primary ballot. It has, for all intents and purposes, negated the caucus system in the state of Utah. Caucuses are our time tested and extremely efficient method of nominating vetted candidates for the primary elections. SB54 completely circumvents the caucus system in our state.
