The Utah Count My Vote Initiative was not on the November 4, 2014 statewide ballot in Utah as an initiated state statute. The measure sought to change the state's system of nominating political candidates.[1] The group Count My Vote Utah, which was sponsoring the measure, ended its campaign to land this measure on the ballot after Gov. Gary Herbert (R) signed a bill requiring an overhaul of the state's nominating process on March 10, 2014.[2]


Count My Vote Utah was the group behind this initiative.[3] After the governor signed the overhaul bill, Taylor Morgan, co-executive director for Count My Vote, said, "Our goal from the beginning has always been to change election policy. Our initiative was a means to an end. … We’re thrilled about [the bill signed by the governor]. This new process of a direct-primary path combined with opening those primaries to unaffiliated voters is a big win for Utah voters."[2]
