Requirements for Election of Utah State Treasurer
David Damschen, Utah State Treasurer, has announced his resignation, which will be effective May 2, 2021.
As required in Utah Code, the State Central Committee of the Utah Republican Party will select three names and forward those names to Utah Governor Spencer Cox, who will then choose one of them to fill the vacancy. The individual selected will then serve in this position until the 2022 general election, when Utah voters will select someone to serve out the remaining two years of Damschen’s term.
To run for public office, Utah State Code requires that a candidate be:
- A citizen of the United States
- 25 years of age or older at the time of election
- A resident of Utah for five years preceding the election
Financial disclosure requirements also exist for candidates who run for office. More information on these can be found at disclosures.utah.gov or by contacting the Office of the Utah Lieutenant Governor.
Under the governing documents of the Utah Republican Party, a candidate for treasurer must:
- Be a registered Republican, and
- File a letter of intent with the party during the filing period (May 3-10)
Under the Utah Republican Party Bylaws, any candidate interested in running for this election must submit a letter of intent to the party. Please send your letter of intent via email to Chris Coombs, [email protected]. This letter of intent must also include the candidate’s full name, address, phone number, and email. The filing period will officially open May 3 and close at 5:00 p.m. on May 10.
The selection of the three names to be forwarded to the Governor will take place at the next regularly scheduled State Central Committee meeting on June 12, 2021.
