On March 22nd, 2016, Utah citizens exercised their voice for who they want to become their party presidential nominee. That year, both Democrats and Republicans have decided to do a presidential caucus rather than a primary election. The 2015 state legislature determined not to fund the state-run primaries in 2016 once the Republicans announced they were switching to a party run caucus format.
This left the state’s Democrats with no choice but to follow suit, though they are not happy about it. The Republican caucus is closed, meaning only Republicans can participate. The Democratic caucus is open, so they are allowing anyone to participate.

The Republican caucus was the first of its kind in Utah in 2016. Until 2016, the GOP has always used the state-run primary voting method for exercising their say in the party nomination. That is when Utah’s Republican leaders felt that a caucus venue would result in better participation. In addition, they held the first all-online caucus voting in history. This means that voters do not have to attend a neighborhood caucus meeting in order to cast their vote – they can simply do it online. Multiple third-party companies had been hired to oversee the online vote and ensure its integrity.
There are 40 delegates at stake for Republicans in Utah. The delegates are awarded proportionally unless one of the candidates exceeds the 50% threshold, in which case it becomes a winner takes all state. No recent polling has been done in Utah, however, Trump is expected to be the Republican nominee unless another Republican runs.
Against their will, the Democrats will also hold a presidential caucus on March 24th. They feel that this will result in less involvement from voters, hence they are not pleased about the situation. The difference in the Democratic caucus is that there will be no online voting available. The state party leaders feel that the expense involved in adding an online voting element is too costly at this point. This means that in order to participate in the Democratic caucuses, you must physically attend a meeting.
The Democrats have 33 delegates at stake in Utah. Polling has yet to be underway in Utah but many candidates will be vying for the Democratic nomination.
At this point, there is little information on candidates which will make it to either party’s caucus. However, as soon as that information is provided they will be included here.
