By Sarah Rosier
Salt Lake City, Utah: Count My Vote, an advocacy group in Utah interested in reforming the political nominating system of the state, announced that it would begin a large-scale push for a ballot initiative.
Count My Vote lists their mission on their website as: "The mission of Count My Vote is to make every vote count. We are determined to increase voter participation and broaden engagement in Utah elections by modernizing its election system through a citizens' initiative petition." On Thursday, Gail Miller, widow of business owner Larry Miller, was announced as its first chairwoman.
The ballot measure would look to change the process for a candidate to get on a primary ballot. Currently Utah uses a caucus system, where party delegates choose the candidates.
