Utah Democrats, GOP Cancel In-person State Conventions
The Utah Republican and Utah Democratic parties intend to cancel their in-person state conventions.
Previously they were scheduled for April 25, and were canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The decisions come after Gov. Gary Herbert announced that mass gatherings of groups in the state will be limited to 100 people.
Both party leaders say they are restructuring their April 25 state conventions, but had little information about how the meetings will look.
Vetting and candidate voting traditionally associated with the state convention will still occur, but primarily in an online format.
