Voting in the Feb 5 Presidential Primary

There has been some confusion in the comments of an earlier post about the procedures for who can vote in the Democratic Presidential Primary on February 5.

I did some searching, and I came accross the following. It is in the Utah Delegate Selection Plan for the 2008 Democratic National Convention, Section I, Paragraph B(7)(a), found on page 1 (emphasis mine):

Participation in Utah’s delegate selection process is open to all voters who wish to participate as Democrats. All registered voters in Utah who registered as Democrats or unaffiliated on their voter registration form shall be allowed to participate in the state-run Presidential Primary. Their choice of ballot shall be recorded by election officials and they shall not be allowed to participate in the primary election voting for another Party’s presidential candidates. The deadline for persons who wish to change their official party designation or register to vote in the Presidential Primary election is Monday, January 7, 2008 by mail or after that date by the close of business on Tuesday, January 29, 2008 at the local office of the County Clerk. All citizens of the United States who will be 18 years of age by the 2008 general election and reside in the voting precinct for which the caucus is held and publicly declare themselves to be participating as Democrats may vote at the precinct caucuses and be elected as delegates to the County, State and National Conventions. (Rules 2.A. & 2.C. & Reg. 4.3.)
