Democracy Day

Capitol Dome Smaller
Democracy Day is coming up soon, right at the beginning of the Utah legislative session on Tuesday, January 28th, just one day after the session convenes.  This is a chance for citizens around the state to hear from state dignitaries, witness a debate between Republican and Democratic party leaders, tour the Capitol, and have lunch with their legislators in the Capitol Rotunda.  You will also have the opportunity to view the Utah House of Representatives and Senate as consider legislation on the floor and watch votes on proposed bills.   The event, including lunch, is free and open to everyone.
