For Immediate Release:

We, the Utah Republican Party, are aware that some Vote by Mail ballots in the upcoming Congressional District 3 Primary were erroneously sent to unaffiliated voters in addition to registered Republicans. I’ve been working closely with Mark Thomas, Director of Elections within the Lieutenant Governor’s office, as well as Bryan Thompson, Utah County Clerk/Auditor. I have received no information to cause me to think this is anything more than an unfortunate error. Also, please keep in mind this is the first time Utah County has conducted a Vote by Mail election. I am confident that all those involved in this matter are committed to a fair and open election.

At this time, Utah County is preparing a statement that explains the error made and their proposed resolution to this matter. Because each VBM envelope/ballot has a unique bar-code, it will be possible to separate registered republican ballots from those of unaffiliated voters. Any votes cast by an unaffiliated voter in the CD3 race will not be counted. As with any election, campaign poll watchers are encouraged to be present during the ballot separation process, as well as the ballot tallying process.

To further clarify, the Utah Republican Party, while working closely alongside the county clerks and the Lieutenant Governor’s office, does not run elections within the State of Utah. We are, however, committed to ensuring the integrity of the voting process is upheld.

Sincerely,

Rob Anderson

America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.

Abraham Lincoln

It is not the critic who counts; …The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; …who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

Ronald Reagan

Love is a fruit in season at all times, and within reach of every hand. It is the greatest gift anyone can give.
