WHY IS A NATIONAL POPULAR VOTE BETTER FOR UTAH?

  • Lots of money is spent by campaigns, and although the economic effect for local communities isn't long-term, the period building up to the election can bring significant revenue to local TV and film production companies, direct-mail, printing and outdoor advertising. Rent of campaign spaces, housing for temporary employment of key employees, and food and entertainment venues may see short term benefits as well. 

  • After a winner-take-all Electoral College election, battleground states get more federal government grants, loans, no-child-left-behind exemptions and shape countless government policies.

  • When the whole nation is a battleground state, as in a National Popular Vote election, a state like Utah, currently an ignored safely red statecould promote its local powerhouse industries: computer chips, cosmetic brands and medical device manufacturers, face to face with candidates. Post-election, the potential for Utah's involvement in the negotiation of international export and trade deals could be significant.
