For the first time, Utah will take center stage in the primary race for president.
On Monday, March 21 Republicans will hold their last scheduled primary debate in Salt Lake City.
That’s the day before Utah’s March 22 caucuses.
Caucuses can be confusing so below you’ll find a guide with everything you need to know so you can participate in the political process.
As part of the primary election process every state has either a caucus or a primary. It is through these processes that voters pick their party’s presidential nominee. State primaries are run by the state’s government and are similar to a regular ballot election. Caucuses, however, are run by state party officials, and are a political event voters attend at a specific time and place.
