On April 10 we sent a questionnaire to every county prosecutor candidate in Utah.
The questionnaire considers three topics: mass incarceration, racial disparities, and prosecutorial misconduct. It gives candidates an opportunity to detail their positions on criminal justice reform, from whether racial disparities exist in their county's criminal justice system (they definitely exist in Utah) to what they will do to reduce incarceration rates. You can find out who your local prosecutor candidate is with our candidate tracker.
Candidates have until May 15 to complete the survey. We will publish the results shortly thereafter on our website so voters can make informed decisions during the upcoming primary elections on June 26 and the following general elections on November 6.
