Ballot Access - From Utah
Delegate Selection Plan (May 2003)
"...pay a filing fee of $2,500 or submit the signatures of at least one thousand five hundred (1,500) registered Democratic voters from each of Utah’s three congressional districts for a total of four thousand five hundrend (4,500) signatures. There will be no provisions made to count ballots cast for write-in candidates; however, 'uncommitted' will appear on the primary ballot as a choice for voters.
"...Presidential candidates must: (1) send a letter to the Chair of the Utah State Democratic Committee with the candidate’s authentic signature stating that they are a candidate for President of the United States and that they wish to participate in Utah’s Presidential preference primary; (2) certify the name, address and telephone numbers of their authorized representative(s) to the State Democratic Chair; (3) submit a written statement indicating specific steps to encourage full participation in Utah’s delegate selection process, including, but not limited to, procedures by which persons may file as candidates for delegate or alternate; and (4) affirm in writing that a) they shall not seek the nomination of another political party in Utah during the same election cycle, b) that they shall be registered to vote, and shall have been registered to vote in the last election for the office of President and Vice President, and c) meet the requirements set forth by the United States Constitution and any laws of the United States to be eligible to serve in the office sought."
The February 24 primary came one week after the Wisconsin primary had knocked Gov. Howard Dean out of the race, leaving Sen. John Kerry and Sen. John Edwards as the two major candidates in the race. Kerry put five staff on the ground, but the candidates focused most of their attention on the upcoming March 2 Super Tuesday contests. Also on February 24 Idaho and Hawaii held caucuses.
