If you have not received a ballot, or have any questions, please contact the Sevier County Clerk at 435-893-0401 or by email at elections@sevier.utah.gov

On the ballot this year, one of the main races of concern to citizens in the North Sevier area is the County Commission Seat A between Republican Gary Mason and Kelly Johnson. Mason was elected in November of 1998 and his term expires January 2015.

There are also three measures submitted to voters, brief summaries of which are supplied below:

Constitutional Amendment A changes how the State Tax Commission is composed. It removes the requirement that two members of the State Tax Commission be appointed from the same political party. Under the current statute, no more than two of the four Utah State Tax Commission members can belong to the same political party. Current provisions of the Utah Constitution

The Utah Constitution directs the State Tax Commission to administer and supervise Utah’s tax laws. The Constitution states that the State Tax Commission consists of four members, appointed by the governor with the consent of the Utah Senate. The Utah Constitution also states that no more than two of those four commission members may belong to the same political party. The Constitution does not provide any other qualifications for members of the State Tax Commission. Constitutional Amendment A removes the limitation that no more than two members of the State Tax Commission may be appointed from the same political party. The Amendment requires State Tax Commission members to meet qualifications as set in statute but allows the Governor to appoint a State Tax Commission member without considering the member’s political party affiliation. Under the Amendment, it is possible for all or a majority of State Tax Commission members to be from the same political party. If approved by voters, Constitutional Amendment A takes effect January 1, 2015. This amendment has no fiscal impact.

 

Constitutional Amendment B changes the term of an appointed lieutenant governor to avoid a potential situation where the term of an appointed lieutenant governor would be different from the term of the governor. Since 1984, the Utah Constitution has required the candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor from each political party to appear together on the same ballot and be voted on together. In 2009, the Utah Constitution was amended to specify what happens in the case of a vacancy in the office of Governor or Lieutenant Governor. Because of the 2009 amendment, it is possible, under certain circumstances, for an appointed Lieutenant Governor to serve to the end of a full four-year term even though the office of Governor is subject to a mid-term election. Likewise, it is possible for a Governor to serve to the end of a full four-year term even though a mid-term election is required for the office of the Lieutenant Governor.

Electing a Governor at a mid-term election when the Lieutenant Governor’s office is not subject to election, or electing a Lieutenant Governor at a mid-term election when the Governor’s office is not subject to election, would be inconsistent with the state’s practice and policy since 1984 of electing the Governor and Lieutenant Governor together. Electing a Governor and Lieutenant Governor at different times also creates the possibility that a Governor and Lieutenant Governor would be from different political parties. If approved by voters, Constitutional Amendment B takes effect January 1, 2015. It has no fiscal impact.

 

Constitutional Amendment C: The Utah Constitution states that, unless otherwise provided in the Constitution, the Attorney General shall be the legal advisor of the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, State Auditor, and State Treasurer. In the case of the Governor, the Constitution provides otherwise by authorizing the Governor to appoint legal counsel to advise the Governor. Under current practice, the Governor’s appointed legal counsel provides the Governor day-to-day legal advice, and the Attorney General continues to represent the Governor in lawsuits involving the Governor. The Constitution does not similarly authorize the Lieutenant Governor, State Auditor, or State Treasurer to appoint legal counsel to advise each of these state offices. Accordingly, the Attorney General is the legal advisor for each of these state officers for all purposes. If approved by voters, Constitutional Amendment C takes effect January 1, 2015. The enactment of Constitutional Amendment C will not alone have any fiscal impact. Depending on how the Lieutenant Governor, State Auditor, and State Treasurer choose to implement the Amendment, there may be an increase in costs to state government. If the Lieutenant Governor, State Auditor, or State Treasurer appoints legal counsel, as the Amendment allows, the increased annual costs to the state will be approximately $120,000 for each new position. The costs may vary depending on a number of factors, including whether the position is full-time or part-time, whether the attorney is hired for a permanent position or on a contract basis, and the level of experience of the attorney hired.
