Those who support eliminating Utah’s caucus system of selecting candidates have been raising funds and collecting signatures for months, planning to take the issue directly to voters.

On Tuesday at 12:15 p.m., Sen. Curt Bramble and Taylor Morgan with Count My Vote join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to talk about the Count My Vote debate and how SB54 changes the conversation.
