State House candidate debates announced

The Better Utah Institute and League of Women Voters of Utah have announced two upcoming general debates for House District 54 and House District 49. The debates will be held via Zoom on Tuesday, September 22nd, and Wednesday, September 30th, and will be open to the general public and press. More information can be found here. Members of the public are invited to submit questions for consideration by the debate moderator.

This is the first year that the Better Utah Institute and the League of Women Voters of Utah have teamed up to host legislative debates. For the past five years, the Better Utah Institute has co-hosted debates for the Utah Legislature, Salt Lake City Mayor, State School Board, and the 3rd Congressional District special election in 2017. The League of Women Voters of Utah has hosted many debates and panels over the years.

While the Better Utah Institute is the logistics organizer for the debates, all matters relating to format, substance, and moderation of the debate are controlled exclusively by the League of Women Voters.
