As I talk with various "movers and shakers" about the United Utah Party, I tell them about how we started, what we stand for, and what we plan to do in 2018.  But I find these people are particularly interested in our candidates.  It is a pleasure to be able to introduce our candidates to them.

Verify Your Voter Registration - Chair's Note

Chair's Note

Eric Eliason, our candidate for the 1st Congressional district, informed me over the weekend that he got a voter card in the mail from his elections office that showed he was registered as an unaffiliated voter.  He then compared it to one he received a month ago saying he was registered with the United Utah Party.  Without his permission, someone in an elections office had changed his party affiliation so he was not longer affiliated with the UUP.

Upon hearing of this, Jim Bennett, our former Congressional candidate, then checked his party registration online and found that the same had occurred to him.  He had done a video blog last year showing his new registration with the UUP.  But when he checked his registration on Monday, he was now unaffiliated.

Upcoming State Convention 2018

The United Utah Party state convention is THIS SATURDAY, April 28, 2018 at 10:00 AM

We will meet at Midvale Middle School in Midvale, UT.

7852 S. Pioneer St., Midvale, UT 84047

As I've participated in my own county convention and have had a chance to talk with other like-minded voters, I feel a new energy growing throughout the state, and I'm loving it! I used to feel so cynical and pessimistic about politics.  My voice didn't matter, my vote didn't count.  Now, I'm starting to catch the vision of what can be accomplished if we unite and do our part. 

Hope to see you all at the state convention!  

For those in Cache, Iron, and Washington counties, we will have official remote viewing locations where you can come and serve as a delegate without needing to drive all the way to Salt Lake City. Here are the locations:


Logan - 

Whittier Community Center
290 N. 400 E.

Now There's a Dream

Come, join us; enter the conversation. Together we’ll listen. Together we’ll find practical solutions. No person will be discounted. No idea will be shunned. Compromise is not a dirty word here. We can move forward above the current political gridlock with respect, compassion, and dignity for all. Now there’s a dream!!

--- Debbie Mays, Letter to the Editor, The Herald Journal, March 24, 2018

These words perfectly summarize the excitement, the exhilaration, and the hope that was felt by nearly 900 caucus-goers at the United Utah’s Party’s first ever caucuses held across the state on March 20, 2018.

If you attended, or followed online, then you know that Utahns showed everyone that night that there is a growing hunger and thirst in our state for a party that makes reasonablenesscompromise, and practicality its central tenants.  There is a great yearning by those who have been left politically homeless by the growing extremism of the Republicans and Democrats to find someplace where they belong.

At the Caucuses, we boldly declared that that someplace is with the

UNITED UTAH PARTY

And we need YOUR help to take that

Message to the state capitol and Congress

Sign up TODAY to be a monthly donor! If you and other Utahns will commit to contribute just $20.18 a month, it will give us the resources we desperately need to bring the type of changes to Utah and the Nation that so many are longing for.

If you can’t donate monthly, then please consider making a one-time donation HERE or sign up to be a volunteer!

By donating today, YOU will add your voice to growing chorus of Utahns who have had enough of partisan bickering and extremism.

PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TODAY!
