People often say that, in a democracy, decisions are made by the majority of the people. Of course, that is not true. Decisions are made by a majority of those who make themselves heard and who vote –a very different thing. -Walter H Judd

Why Would I want to be a Delegate?
Were you frustrated during the last legislative session, wondering what you could do to make a difference? Becoming a delegate within the Democratic or Republican Party will give you a voice in putting fair-minded candidates on the ballot.
- Making a difference in your community begins in discussions with your family, friends, co-workers and neighbors; once you become a delegate you can represent your views and the views of your neighbors and co-workers by becoming a powerful voice in your party.
- To achieve a fair and just Utah for the LGBT community and its allies, your participation in all levels of the political process is crucial. Becoming a delegate is an important first step in electing fair-minded candidates to office.
- Delegates are also the grassroots organizers of their political party and when delegates are active, fair-minded candidates win!
Delegates are individuals who have the power to elect candidates within the political parties. They make the decision about who represents the party in the primaries and the general elections. They may also elect State and County party officials.
Learning how to be an effective delegate and participating in the (electoral) precinct process will allow our community to play a role in placing fair-minded candidates on the front lines of politics.
In order to change the faces on Capitol Hill, we must change the names on the ballots. As a delegate, you have the power to make that change.
