    So now we have the Primary voting about done today. The question is, how does the Legislature pass a bill contrary to the US Constitution? The Legislature passed a bill saying it is okay for 17 year olds as long as they get to 18 before the General Voting in November this year.

    The 26th US Constitution reads: "The right of citizens of the United States, who are 18 years of age or older, to vote, shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or any state on account of age.:

    It does not seem, at least to me, that 17 is not allowed. Will that change any of the votes this Primary?? I would think that the Utah Attorney General would pull out any 17 year old votes.

    Down here in St George, the single biggest issue that I think will affect the area moving forward is the Lake Powell Pipeline--a massively expensive project that will impose a crushing financial burden and exacerbate the already rapid growth here.

    Fortunately, either one or both candidates for each of the 3 seats on the ballot have taken a position on this boondoggle.
