HB 159: Amendments to Voter Registration (Rep. Handy) aims to make registration easier and improve voter participation by making voter registration automatic when people get a Utah driver’s license. Why is this important? Because Utah has consistently scored near the bottom in voter participation in recent years. We can help change that! The changes proposed in HB 159 are supported by the Association of County Election Clerks and the Lieutenant Governor’s Elections Office. Let’s get support for this bill from your state representatives too!
HB 159 goes up for a vote on the House floor TOMORROW (House floor time is scheduled between 10-12 and 2-5 tomorrow), so we need to email state representatives immediately!
