Utah’s grassroots organization “We ARE The People” is resurrecting a push to restore Utah’s election system to how it used to be, before Utah’s elite started a decade long initiative to destroy it and “make us like California”.

The destruction came through a series of conspiratorial meetings and fake “conservative” leadership which ultimately ended in legislation known as “SB54”, referring to the bill number of the year that this freedom killing legislation was passed.
The primary idea was to say that Utah’s caucus system of choosing candidates, where grassroots neighborhood volunteers met with big name candidates face to face to ask them real questions, could be entirely skipped by instead gathering signatures for candidates. And signatures are generally gathered by big name candidates through paid signature gatherers. It means power players could buy their way into each election without having to face real people in real neighborhoods. If you’re googling about this, the term “signature route” or “signature path” was a common media term you’ll find.
The story is full of dramatic conspiracy, opposition and controlled opposition. The initial “Count My Vote” organization promoted the caucus destroying idea for the elite, with the “Keep Our Caucus” grabbing the grass roots. The opposition to SB54 was later transitioned into a clear controlled-opposition movement called “Keep My Voice“, creating confusion between the two organizations.
The grassroots of Utah did their best to fight this, but controlled leadership made it a rigged game. In the end the insiders got what they wanted through conspiratorial means, and the Supreme Court seemingly approved of what happened? The devil is in the details.
