There are many exciting changes and challenges facing the Republican Party right now. At our next central committee meeting we will be talking about the changes to the caucus system for 2014.
These changes include:
(1) A pre-meeting right before caucus to meet those that are running for delegate and officer positions.
(2) Electronic check-in to reduce check-in time to fifteen minutes or less.
(3) A same day absentee ballot system to allow those that can’t attend to cast a vote.
(4) Changing the name of the meeting to “Neighborhood Caucus Election”.
(5) Guidelines that the meeting should be more friendly, open, welcoming and respectful. Also that the meeting should last no more than two hours.
(6) A new faster voter procedure.
At our upcoming meeting, we will be voting on the new proposed caucus voting procedure. We will also be voting on supporting the group that has been organized to protect the neighborhood caucus meetings, called Utah First.
Utah First is a non-partisan PIC (political issues committee) with support from leaders across the state from both parties. They are working to stop the “Count My Vote” referendum that seeks to change Utah to a direct primary system. You can get more information on Utah First at http://www.neighborhoodelection.org
