Why Neighborhood Elections in Utah

The purpose of our current neighborhood election system is for parties to nominate their best candidates and not necessarily their richest ones. It provides an opportunity for the average voter to help decide their party's nominee (along with their party officers, platform, constitution and bylaws). We have a system that that does NOT favor the incumbent, the wealthy or the famous. This is a good thing, and should be preserved.
