We the undersigned believe that public money should not be spent on a closed primary exclusively for one political party. We believe the legislature should allow taxpayer money to be spent only for primary elections that are open to all voters, regardless of party affiliation. We believe that funding a closed primary is like taxation without representation, which our ancestors fought against over 200 years ago. We believe that should not happen again today.
We support the United Utah Party's efforts to end public funding of closed primary elections.
