Gov. Herbert Approves Changes to Caucus System

Published on March 11, 2014 at 11:30AM

Gov. Gary Herbert has signed off on a deal between Utah legislators and a group pushing to overhaul the states’s system for nominating political candidates. Herbert announced his approval Monday afternoon for a measure that preserves Utah’s caucus-convention system but allows primary elections as an alternative path to the ballot if a candidate gathers enough signatures. The Senate voted 21-7 to approve the measure. The house approved it 49-20.

Some Republicans voted against the measure in both chambers, citing opposition to legislation that tells political parties how to operate. A group called Count My Vote said it would continue gathering signatures for a ballot initiative to let voters dump the caucus system entirely unless Herbert signed the legislation. The organization wasn’t immediately available for comment.
