“The Utah GOP encourages all registered Republicans to have their voices heard in selecting their preferred presidential candidate, state and county delegates, as well as local precinct officers by participating in the upcoming caucus night,” said Utah GOP Chairman Robert Axson. “Our party has invested a historic amount of money into advertising to promote caucus participation.

We want to thank the thousands of people who have already pre-registered for the upcoming caucus night, demonstrating a strong interest and commitment to participating in the political process.
