Kurt Weiland For US Congress

After last month’s State Democratic Convention two democrats moved on to the June Primary.  The winner goes on to face Rob Bishop in the General Election. Bishop has represented Utah’s 1st congressional district since 2003. The district includes Summit County and runs north and east to the state lines of Idaho, Wyoming and Colorado.  Democrat Kurt Weiland is hoping to win the Primary and move on to defeat Bishop.  Carolyn Murray has this:  

Both the Democratic and Republican parties have had their state conventions and now primary races are in full swing. You might've noticed due to the numerous campaign signs throughout the area. The signs left some wondering, what are the rules to campaign signage? David Boyle has more:

In a state where only 20 women serve in the 104-member-Legislature, it’s unique to have a small, rural town like Midway, produce three female candidates for mayor.  Because only two names can be on the general election ballot, a primary will happen in just two weeks.  Carolyn Murray has more.

Changes in local election laws are being contemplated by a committee convened by Utah's Lieutenant Governor. But dramatic changes - like allowing all-mail voting, aren't in the cards yet, according to County Clerk Kent Jones. Rick Brough has more.

To all appearances, last weekend's Republican and Democratic state conventions could be the last round for Utah's caucus and convention system as we know it. A bill in the recent legislature altered the process for candidates to get on a primary ballot.

But Summit County's Democratic and GOP party chairs think the caucus system might still be basically unchanged. Rick Brough has more.

The election is more than a year away, but there will be a contest in 2014 for Summit County Attorney. Former Third District Court Judge  says he plans to run for the job, as a Democrat. And incumbent County Attorney, David Brickey, a Republican, says he will be asking voters for a third term.

Besides Park City, the only other primary election contest in the county yesterday took place in Coalville, where six candidates vied to run for Mayor. 

The candidate with the most voites in that contest led the pack by nearly 100 votes. But the second-place finisher, and three other candidates, were separated from each other by razor-thin margins. Rick Brough has more.
