r On March 20 – caucus night in Utah – voters will have a new alternative for caucus attendance this year – the caucus meetings of the United Utah Party. According to Richard Davis, United Utah Party chair, the new party is a centrist, reform-oriented party seeking to invite citizens back into politics rather than pushing them away.  “We invite all Utah voters to attend the caucus meetings of the United Utah Party,” said party chair Richard Davis. “Come join us in changing politics and government for the better.”r

Unlike Republican Party caucuses, the United Utah Party caucus meetings will be open to all voters, regardless of party affiliation. The United Utah Party caucuses will occur March 20, 2018, at 7:00 p.m at the following South Utah County locations:

Other caucus locations around the state can be found at UnitedUtah.org.

The party also welcomes those who live in areas of the state not close to these locations to arrange to participate via video conference call. Conference call information can be obtained by emailing administrative assistant@unitedutah.org.

r

The United Utah Party caucus meetings also will differ from other parties by not electing delegates to a convention. The party makes any party member automatically a delegate to its county and state conventions.

r

“We’re not electing anyone to represent you. You can represent yourself at our conventions,“ said Davis. “And we are setting up regional convention satellite locations across the state so more people can participate in the state convention. Anyone who lives over 50 miles from the state convention  can participate via conference call. This is all part of our effort to broaden participation, not limit it.”

r

The United Utah Party grew from a group of Utah citizens dissatisfied with the Republican and Democratic parties and seeking an alternative that advocates pragmatism, seeks common ground in developing solutions, and calls for a more respectful, reasoned, and civil society in a time when those traits are missing even at the highest levels of government. In an effort to restore political power to Utah voters, the United Utah Party supports reforms such as term limits, campaign finance limits, more non-partisan elections, and open primaries.
