Utah league launches 30-day voter registration campaign
SALT LAKE CITY (2/20/14)--On Wednesday, the Utah Credit Union Association (UCUA) set into motion a 30-day campaign to get citizens registered to vote by visiting credit union branches or a special website.
 
Rolled out on the steps of the Capitol, "Ready. Set. Vote." can assist Utah's 750,000 unregistered voters prepare for the polls. "We're trying to make that as easy as possible," said Scott Simpson, UCUA president/CEO (The Salt Lake Tribune Feb. 19).
 
Getting registered now means voters will be able to take part in next month's political party caucuses, which begin the long string of elections between now and the November general election. Utah will hold caucuses in March, conventions in April and primaries in June.
 
Simpson said that if someone is not registered to vote, they "really are not part of the dialogue."
 
About 100 credit union members and employees who had just registered stood behind Simpson as he announced "Ready. Set. Vote." in the Hall of Governors at the State Capitol building.
 
Voter participation is encouraged on the campaign's website: "It's your voice for what you want in our community, who you want to lead, and what issues you want resolved."
