Utah House Passes Bill to Move Presidential Primary so that Utah Votes First

On March 10, the Utah House passed HB 410 by a vote of 58-14. The bill says that Utah’s presidential primary will be on a date that makes it earlier than any other state’s primary or caucus. However, the bill only goes into effect if the Utah legislature appropriates funds to hold the primary, and only if the Utah legislature passes a bill in the future making the vote on-line.

All of the “no” votes were cast by Republicans.

    I like this — it sets up a nice contradiction with New Hampshire’s law providing that NH is to hold the first primary.

    Hopefully we will see NH and UT each moving their primaries further and further back. Soon they will get to the point where their primaries are scheduled in the past and they have already passed the date to hold them.

    1. One more reason to abolish the super time bomb Electoral College.

    2. Will the first Prez primary be on the first day after the last Prez election day ??? — due to the State MORONS at work.
