As recently stated by Rep. Warren Petersen (LD12), "Technology has paved the way for you to get more involved in the democratic process. The 2014 primaries are only 9 months away. All of the statewide offices are up, and it is critical that we elect candidates that will preserve liberty (especially for Governor!). Please take a minute to nominate those candidates you would like to see on the ballot for 2014. Visit the Secretary of State’s Voter Authentication site and fill in your information. It will take you to a page where you can digitally sign petitions for statewide candidates." You can also make a $5 Qualifying Contribution, if applicable.

Every signature makes a difference, and anyone in your home that is registered to vote can do it. The candidates can collect some digital signatures, and the remainder have to be on paper. Be sure to make a $5 Qualifying Contribution for candidates who can accept them.
Be sure to vet candidates before supporting them. Ask them for their ratings. For example, here is some information on Rep. Warren Petersen (LD12). I must warn you. Warren Petersen has set the bar very high.
