Utah's unique caucus system is not "archaic," as claimed in the July 2 editorial ("More inclusive?").

In fact, it is a great system for empowering those who really care enough about good government to attend and have their voices heard. Those who do not attend are voicing their civic irresponsibility, as loudly proclaimed by Utah's low voter turnout.
