HOW DOES UTAH RATE IN VOTER TURNOUT? NOT GOOD.
We had over a million votes in 2016 and that’s worth showing up for; elections have been won or lost by less. Still, under the current system, we ranked 39th in voter participation. Imagine Utah as a battleground state where every voter in every party, knew every vote counted. Registration and turnout would increase significantly because that’s what happens in battleground states and under a National Popular Vote every state is a battleground state.
If you think it’s good that more people vote in presidential elections, support National Popular Vote. If you think it’s bad, support the status quo and keep more Utahns at home on Election Day instead of at the polls.
