Utah Women and Voting
In 2016, the Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP) released a research snapshot called “Voting and Civic Engagement Among Utah Women.” At the time, despite having a strong history of women’s political and civic involvement, Utah had fallen to the bottom of national rankings in terms of women’s political participation. In 2019, UWLP released an update of this report, which showed some improvement in voter participation rates for both the United States and for Utah women. Since 2016, the level of political engagement among women in Utah and the United States has grown. Of course, Kamala Harris was elected the first female vice president, which made 2020 a historic year for women in the US. Utah also elected former state Senator Deidre Henderson as its second female lieutenant governor.
