Letter: Independents unwanted

Published: Friday, Jan. 24 2014 12:00 a.m. MST

I understand that only two of five Utah voters are registered Republicans. But because of Utah Republican Party rules, neither I nor any other independent voter has any say whatsoever in their caucus elections. Nor can I vote in their primary elections (even though my taxes pay for them). In this unfair way, a red-meat Republican minority keeps a stranglehold on our state government.

I support the Count My Vote petition so the majority of us who are not registered Republicans can have some say in who represents us. It’s only fair.
