It was upsetting to see so many of my fellow delegates at the state Republican Convention vote to keep the status quo, the unrepresentative caucus system for selecting candidates ("Utah GOP again rejects reforms to nomination process," Tribune, May 20).
Delegates endowed with so much power have no incentive to dilute it. It was dismaying to realize that these votes were being cast by delegates who don't well represent the average GOP voter, let alone the average voter.
An animated cartoon shown to illustrate how the caucus system worked underscored this point. It portrayed a typical caucus, populated by mostly men, who elect "John" to go to a convention and vote on their behalf.
