Republican convention results

On April 26, 2014, at Utah’s GOP Convention, delegates chose incumbent Chris Stewart as the Republican candidate in the 2014 general election. Stewart received 602 votes, or 67.79 percent, while Larry Meyers received 191 votes, or 25.51 percent, Vaughn Hatton received 53 votes, or 5.9 percent and Zachary Hartman received 42 votes, or 4.73 percent.[7]

Utah uses a convention-primary system to choose candidates for general elections. At the state nominating convention, delegates cast votes for a candidate on behalf of their district. If a delegate receives 60% of the votes, the candidate moves on to the general election; otherwise, the two remaining candidates compete in a primary election.[8] According to The Salt Lake Tribune, “The group Count My Vote, led by former Utah Gov. Mike Leavitt and other influential and well-heeled Republicans, launched a petition drive last year to put a measure on the ballot to strip the party conventions of most of their authority, arguing the caucus-convention system is exclusionary and doesn’t represent the average Utahn.”[9]

Democratic convention results

Robles won the Democratic nomination on April 26, 2014. She ran unopposed.[6]
