Make that 61% -- I'm voting for lower taxes, less government, and a better economy.

I'm in the military out of state and sent my ballot in. Here's the deal, folks... if you don't vote, you have no right to complain later. So, make your voice heard.

Too bad soldiers from some heavily democratic municipalities won't be given the chance because their communities failed (refused?) to send them their ballots on time.

I kind of feel bad for Matheson, he is a victim of his own party, many will miss him!

Vote,vote, vote! It's time for the right change. Lets pray that those wechoose as leaders will move forward in faith having courage to do that which is right, giving States the power alloted to them by the
Constitution, that we then become involved creating communities where compassion is the order of the day.

Whatever you do, don't read this article and think, "Oh, looks like I don't need to vote because everyone else is." That is a fatal mistake.

Just for laughs, I’m reading a book today called “The Death of Conservatism” by Sam Tanenhaus, a New York Times editor.
Obama overused the word “unprecedented,” but I think it applies today.

We tossed out the Republicans in 2006 and 2008. We're tossing out Democrats in 2010 and 2012.

Will they get the message?

"It's the spending, stupid."

Hopefully that turnout is to put libertarians or constitutionalists in office where the only real change can happen

West Jordan, UT

I feel really strongly that it's time for a change, just like in 2008. So get out and vote but make an educated decision, not like so many did in 2008.

Chris Degn--thank you for your service, Godspeed to you and your family.

Why should one go out and and vote when your state's votes seem mostly predetermined and there are only two parties to choose from, neither of which you may agree with. In a state that is religiously biased and punishes so-called sinners with unequal taxation....why bother?

Sandy, UT

Vote for Morgan Philpot for Utah's Second Congressional District1!

Just voted in Cottonwood Heights. Poll workers said turnout was ahead of the last general election.

Study the candidates and issues, pray about what to choose, then vote!

Additionally, take your children with you to the polls so they can witness first hand your participation in this incredible process. I truely believe that children who see their parents actively participate in their right to vote are the ones in the next generation who will be active voting participants.

Hoping, and praying (LITERALLY!) that conservatives will win the Senate as well as the House.

That would be better than Christmas come early.

Take out the trash.
