Message from the Chair:
After a year of online events, online meetings, and virtual conventions, the Wasatch Democrats Central Committee approved holding the 2021 Organizing Convention outdoors with social distancing protocols on May 22nd. We hope to see you there!
We are looking forward to seeing our friends and neighbors again after a difficult year of dealing with the pandemic. The Wasatch County Health Department has done an excellent job administering the COVID vaccines that will help us enjoy a more normal summer. Local outdoor events including the farmer’s market in Midway and the Heber Market and concerts will resume.

Municipal Elections 2021
Every city and town holds elections for mayor and council seats this year. These are nonpartisan elections. Be involved on a local level.
Build the bench! Contest Every Race is working with the Utah Democratic Party to recruit Democrats to run locally!
Not sure how to file or run for office? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Terri Goodall @ 435-709-8243 to discuss this opportunity to serve your community.
Filing dates are June 1- 7 for most municipalities. Heber City will use Ranked Choice Voting this year which eliminates a primary so Heber City filing dates are August 10-17.
We’re here to help! Watch this blog and our Facebook page for announcements about candidate training events.
