Utah, we want to hear from you! Elections happen in our state every year, offering opportunities for community members to run for offices at all levels of government. In addition, seats are available on neighborhood and school community councils, delegate and party positions, boards and commissions — seats many community members don’t consider when they think about running for office. Hearing about community members running for office can be inspiring and encouraging for people considering a run.
