Dear Friends,
Over 200,000 Utahns have voted early, as of Tuesday morning, either by mail or by visiting an early polling location. If you have yet to vote, try to get out and vote today to skip the lines and avoid the rush on Tuesday, November 6!
If you were mailed a ballot, please send it back as soon as possible to ensure that your county clerk receives it on time.
You may continue to vote early through Friday, November 2. To find your early voting location, CLICK HERE.
Be sure to encourage your family, friends and neighbors to vote. Thank you for your support in my campaign for attorney general!

    Republican Party Grows in Utah

    Republican Affiliated Voters grew by 7% in last year and Republican Vote By Mail Voters Increased by 88%

    SALT LAKE CITY—Republican Party affiliation has grown by more than 36,794 in the last year -- an increase of nearly 7%. Republican voters in the state number 575,401 -- now outnumbering the 510,417 Unaffiliated voters. There are 108,645 registered Democrats. Rep
    ublican Vote By Mail voters have also increased by more than 45,000 to a total of 96,306. There are 19,096 Democrat and 49,987 Unaffiliated Vote By Mail voters. Republican Vote By Mail ballots now account for 57.6% of all ballots mailed.

    “Momentum is building as more and more Utahns feel the urgency to get involved in their community and to change the direction of this Country,” said Thomas Wright, Chairman of the Utah Republican Party. “I invite all Utahns to vote in the most historic election in Utah’s history. From Mitt Romney running for President to Congressional candidate Mia Love, there are plenty of reasons to vote. It is going to be a big year.”

    The increases are the result of the Utah Republican Party’s efforts to encourage participation in 2012. The Party’s outreach efforts will continue through Election Day. “I expect the highest voter turnout in Utah’s history and that is good for Utah and good for the Country,” said Chairman Wright.

    March: 125,000 Republicans attended their Neighborhood Caucus, doubling the previous attendance record

    April: the Party increased the number of state delegates from 3,500 to 4,000

    Mail-in Voter Registration Deadline October 9

    SLCOGOP Update from Chair2
    Dear Contact First Name,

    Election Day is just a few weeks away. But for those with vote by mail ballots, it is NOW! If you haven't already, please sign up for a Vote By Mail(absentee) ballot or change your address here:

    Many of you have canvassed your neighborhoods. THANK YOU!! There are a few important deadlines to remember. The Voter Registration deadline is next Tuesday, October 9th. Please make sure to deliver all completed voter registration forms to the Salt lake County Clerks Office by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, October 9th:

    Salt Lake County Clerk's Office
    2001 South State, Suite S-2200
    Salt Lake City, Utah 84190-1050
    Tel: 435-468-7400

    Online or in-person Voter Registration will continue until 5:00PM, Monday Oct. 22.

    The deadline to turn in Vote By Mail Registration is Friday November 2nd. Please do not wait to turn these in to the County Clerks Office. Although the last day to officially turn in Vote By Mail Registration is the Friday before election, with mail constraints, please turn these in ASAP, and we strongly recommend no later than Monday October 22nd.

    Take a look at some compelling data to show why the vote by mail campaign is so important.

    1) In the Primary on June 26 2012, the Republican turnout for Vote by Mail was 67%. If you didn't get your ballot in the mail, but instead voted in person during early voting or on voting day, the turnout was 38%. In other words,if you received your ballot in the mail, you were 2 times more likely to vote.

    2) In the 2010 General Election, turnout for Republican Vote By Mail voters was 82%, compared to non vote by mail voters which was 67%. A difference of 15% which can swing a race.

    Please note that as of July 31st, 2012, only 33% of all Republicans were registered to vote by mail. Here are some facts to consider:
    • You can STILL vote at the polls: Just bring the VBM ballot with you and surrender to the poll worker. Lost the ballot, you can still vote at the poll provisionally.
    • Do Your Homework: Voting by mail gives voters a chance see what is on the ballot and to research candidates and issues prior to arriving at the polls. Check out our SLCo candidates.
    • Vote Early and Make it count: We've all had issues that have prevented us from arriving at the poll on election day. We work diligently to get there, but we miss a vote. In the event any of you question whether this is true, take a look at municipal primary elections over the last decade. Turnout in a municipal primary is often in the SINGLE digits.
    Forward this on to your friends and family, so everyone is registered and signed up to Vote By Mail. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
