Five state executive positions were up for election in 2012 in the state of Utah. In Utah, candidates are not necessarily nominated through a primary election. Each party holds a statewide convention during which the party delegates vote for candidates. If a candidate receives more than 60% of the delegate vote, they receive the party's nomination and no primary election is held. If no candidates receives the requisite 60% of the delegate vote, the top two finishers from the convention face off in the primary. The primary election took place on June 26, 2012. The general election took place on November 6, 2012.
