Represent Me Utah is a nonpartisan citizen group advocating for redistricting reform in Utah.

Mission

Represent Me Utah's mission statement contains four points:[1]

  • Organizing rallies and letter writing campaigns to mobilize each and every Utahn that believes in fair representation
  • Demand for fair redistricting is the message of the decade, since redistricting occurs only once every ten years
  • We believe fair and transparent redistricting is a nonpartisan issue and the RIGHT thing to do
  • We want ALL Utah voices to be heard and represented

Rallies

Represent Me Utah held a rally for fair redistricting at the Utah State Capitol on April 9, 2011. It was organized by Kelli Lundgren and drew about 30 protestors.[2]

Represent Me Utah was also a major participant in another rally [1], [2] held October 3, 2011 at the Utah State Capitol as part of Speak Up Utah! [3] coalition. Other coalition members and organizers included Alliance for a Better Utah [4], Fair Boundaries, League of Women Voters of Utah [5] and the Utah Citizens' Counsel [6]. Represent Me Utah did not rally against the state School Board, House and Senate maps. However, after the passage of SB3002, the 2011 Utah Congressional map [7] on October 17, 2011, Represent Me Utah joined most major Utah news outlets in calling for a veto by Governor Herbert.
