An initiative has begun to register thousands more Utah women to vote in time for the 2020 presidential election. The non-partisan groups Voterise and the Utah League of Women Voters and others have joined forces to launch the program.

The 2020 Challenge is a woman to woman voter registration initiative. Voterise and the Utah League of Women Voters plan to recruit 1000 ambassadors to be trained in voter registration techniques.

Co-founder of Voterise, Elsa Garry says they want to generate 20,000 new women voters in the state.
