We are extraordinarily grateful for the outpouring of support we’ve seen since our announcement this morning. Our inboxes are filling up; our phone is ringing off the hook, and everyone wants to know how they can help.
But the one question we’re getting above all others is this one:
“Where do I sign?”
As you know, we need to gather 2,000 signatures to become a registered political party with the state of Utah. We are well on our way to that goal, and we are optimistic that we will have those signatures delivered to the Lieutenant Governor’s office by Thursday of this week. But, of course, we still want to gather as many signatures as we can get.
The challenge is that this can’t happen online or remotely. Each signature has to come from a registered Utah voter, and they have to sign it in the presence of a witness who can verify that the signature was properly collected. That means that those who want to sign have to show up, in person, to sign the petition.
To make that easier, we’ve talked to our supporters, some of whom have opened their businesses to allow people to come in and sign at locations in both Salt Lake and Utah counties. If you want to sign the petition, you can do so at the following places during regular business hours:
273 E Capitol St
Salt Lake City, UT 84103
Open M-F 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM
The Lodge at Jordan River.
1341 W South Jordan Parkway.
Open M-F 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM
1172 W 700 N
Lindon, UT 84042
Open M-F 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM
The other option available is to print a copy of the petition and collect signatures yourself. This would require a greater commitment of time and energy than just signing, but if this interests you, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll walk you through the process.
Thanks so much for your interest in the party! With your support, better government starts here!
United Utah Party
