Are you a registered Republican or Democrat? Get thee hence to the Utah presidential caucuses this evening, where on the Democratic side, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and his opponent, Hillary Clinton, will compete for 37 delegates.
It has been two decades since Utahns picked their presidential matches in caucus-style meetings. The state typically uses a primary election. But in 2015, due to controversy surrounding Senate Bill 54, which thwarted a ballot initiative that would have permitted open primaries in the Beehive State, the Legislature declined to budget the $3 million needed to fund an election. Thus, the parties are springing for their own caucuses. It's kind of a big deal actually.
