On Utah ballots, voters may indicate a straight-ticket vote for a particular political party. However, straight-ticket voting can cause significant issues and voter confusion. HB 259 would remove the straight-ticket option on the ballot in order to eliminate this confusion and help to ensure voters get their votes counted on each item on the ballot they choose to vote on.
This bipartisan bill would not prohibit a voter from voting for all candidates from a single party, but it would improve the likelihood that a ballot cast would accurately reflect the voter’s wishes. Help this good bill pass in the Senate!
HB 259 passed in the House and moves on to the Senate. Ask Senators to vote YES on HB 259!
