I hope the governor signs this bill. It’s something I support fully.
Rep. Patrice Arent’s bill to ban straight-ticket voting — the state’s long-held practice of being able to check a single box on a ballot to vote for all of the candidates of one political party
If the governor signs, in Novembers election Utah Voters will actually have to go down the ballot and read the candidates and vote for the one they want.
I’d like it to go one step further. Just have the names with no party affiliation next to them. If you don’t know who the Dem or the Rep or Lib or Ind is, then they might just leave it blank, or they will just take a wild guess as to who they ~THINK~ they want.
Imagine if they actually had to know the candidates and what their platform is.
