SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – On the eve of midterm elections 2018, voters have been inundated with political information telling them who to vote for. Now it’s just a matter of showing up at the polls.
A rally hosted Monday night on the Utah Capitol steps set out to motivate people to vote.
“Your one vote does count. Your one vote can swing an election year. Your one vote needs to be heard by that future legislator,” says Daud Mumin, March for Our Lives Utah.
Utahns will also be asked to vote on judges to determine if they should be retained or not. However, there isn’t quite the amount of political noise to help voters know what the right choice is.
The Judicial Performance Evaluation Commission (JPEC) takes a look at judges’ performances and provides evaluation information to help voters make the decision. Voters can go to judges.utah.gov and pick their county to see what the commission recommends and reports that have been filed about the judges.
‘We believe that an informed vote is a better vote,” said JPEC executive director, Jennifer Yim.
