Utah politics is a fascinating mix of policy making, local culture, and religion. The course will explore Utah politics, how citizens can be more engaged and how to deal with voter apathy. It will provide insights for non-native Utahns into the idiosyncrasies of Utah politics. We will cover political structures in Utah from a historical perspective and discuss current Utah cultural influences on politics, citizens' involvement and engagement in the political process, single party dominance and its effect on political culture, and the plight of disenfranchised voters.
