2018 Candidate Survey Results

Our 501(c)4 arm, Utah Cultural Advocacy Alliance, sent out candidate surveys assessing support for issues of importance to arts, humanities, and cultural businesses. All candidates who scored 100% are endorsed by Utah Cultural Advocacy Alliance. Because our endorsement is based entirely on survey response, it is possible that multiple candidates in the same race can receive the endorsement of Utah Cultural Advocacy Alliance. 

We at Utah Cultural Advocacy Alliance encourage that you vote for the candidates who also support culture!

UPDATE: If an asterisk has been placed next to a candidate's name it means they are still in the race.
