Utah State and Local Government


Nomination note: In UTAH, where a single candidate has already received the support of a percentage (set by the party) of the delegates at the Party Convention, that candidate receives the Party's nomination. Otherwise, the top two vote getters at the Convention advance to the Primary. The "Count My Vote" laws lets candidates be nominated by convention or petition their way on to the primary ballot. Independents are allowed to participate in party primaries.

Conventions are held by the Constitution, Democratic (23 April), Green, Independent American, Libertarian, Republican, and United Utah parties prior to the primary. The Constitution, Democratic, Green, Independent American Party, Libertarian, Republican, and United Utah Parties are ballot qualified.


14 February 2022: Utah Governor Gary Herbert (Republican) signed SB 170 which moves the independent petition deadline from 11 March 2022 to 4 March 2022. Beginning in 2023, the independent petition deadline is 6 January. In addition, the presidential independent petition deadline is moved from August to 6 January.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
