We identify, invest, and ignite a dialogue with voters that live in Utah’s rural areas, empowering them to take action and vote on the issues that matter most for Utah’s future. We believe that when we organize overlooked communities in our state, that we will be able to inspire important conversations and create life-long citizen advocates for Utah’s future.

About the Rural Addressing Program
While registering thousands of voters on the Navajo Nation, the Rural Utah Project discovered that up to 18% of Native American voters were registered in the wrong precinct - making it nearly impossible for these voters to cast their ballots for the correct candidate. The main cause? A lack of physical addresses. Now, we’ve set out to address the problem at its source by creating voting addresses for Navajo Nation voters.
