SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (News4Utah) – The state’s chief executive is calling on Utahns to do better when it comes to civic duty.
Governor Gary Herbert says there is a lot to be proud of here in Utah, but he’s disappointed in voter turnout.
In the middle of convention season and with the primary election approaching the governor took time during his monthly news conference to call Utah voters to action.
He says it’s our obligation to pay attention to issues and candidates and make our voices heard.
“We’ve made it much easier with vote by mail. There’s really no excuse for people not to participate, not to understand the issues, and candidates and to vote and participate in the election process,” said Herbert.
The primary election is Tuesday, June 26. Mail-in ballots will go out around June 5th in most Utah counties.
