Utah Republican Party Makes Big Changes to the Neighborhood Caucus Meetings
This year the Utah Republican Party has made significant changes to improve the Neighborhood Caucus meetings. These meetings are where communities select trusted neighbors to serve as delegates. These neighborhood delegates select candidates that go forward to party primaries and then general elections.
These five changes make the Neighborhood Caucus meetings shorter, more welcoming, and allow everyone to participate.
- Anyone engaged in military or religious service out of state can cast an absentee ballot at the Neighborhood Caucus meetings.
- Anyone that is unable to attend the meeting locally can also cast an absentee ballot.
- The check-in and voting procedures have been streamlined to shorten the meeting time dramatically.
- A neighborhood website is available with the contact info of those that are running for positions. This allows those casting ballots to make a more educated choice by contacting those that are running.
- A neighborhood meet and greet meeting is available right before the Neighborhood Caucus to ask questions of those that are running for delegate positions.
