I went to vote in the primaries. Mainly, I wanted to see if the new Deibold voting machines were as horrible as the progressive press claims.

Unfortunately, the only election in my precinct was a vote for the Republican candidate for sheriff. I would have had to switch from Unaffiliated to "Utah Republican." That thought gave me the willies; so I slunk away from the polls.

Since the Mormon voting block goes Republican these days, the Utah Republican primary is often more important than the general election. It would actually make a lot of sense in this state to Register Republican; so that you can vote in the election that counts.

Sadly, this years primary was a dud. That might explain why I couldn't find much information to include on the salt lake political directory for the primaries.
