Voters registered as Republicans will be eligible to sign a signature packet for the Becky Edwards campaign.
Traditionally, Utah Republican candidates were chosen only via a caucus system. But in 2014 the Utah Legislature passed SB54, which provides candidates an additional path to the primary ballot outside of the caucus system. If a candidate gathers 28,000 signatures from voters affiliated with their party, they then enter a primary election between the convention winner and those who gather enough signatures.
We need 28,000 signatures to ensure Becky Edwards is on the primary election ballot. Every individual who signs a signature packet for Becky must meet the following qualifications:
We need all the help we can get to gather 28,000 signatures. If you would like to volunteer to help us gather signatures, please fill out this form and register for an online training session. Once you have completed the form we will send further instructions.
In addition to gathering signatures, Becky will also be attending the caucus convention in April. Delegates selected in March neighborhood meetings will meet at the convention to select the Republican nominees for a number of general election races. Any candidate with over 40% of the delegate votes will be on the primary ballot along with the candidates who gather at least 28,000 signatures.
A delegate is a person elected or appointed to represent others in their party from a specific precinct or neighborhood. County delegates select nominees for local office while state delegates select nominees for statewide offices, such as the U.S. Senate seat. Delegates select these party nominees at county and state conventions, which are typically held in late April or May. Any registered Republican can become a delegate to help select the Republican nominee. By becoming a delegate, you can have a strong voice in the selection of the Republican nominee for the U.S. Senate. Become a delegate to help select Becky Edwards.
The Republican nominee selected by delegates and any nominee who successfully gathers 28,000 signatures will be on the ballot for the June 28 Republican Primary.
County clerks will begin mailing ballots to all registered Republicans 21 days before the primary election.
Ballots must be postmarked the day before the primary election to be counted.
Voters may also vote in person or drop ballots off at a local polling place on election day (find your nearest polling place here).
Once Becky wins the Republican primary she will face any Independent and Democrat challengers in the November 8, 2022, general election. All registered Utahns will be eligible to vote and select Utah’s next U.S. Senator.
