The Importance of Rural Organizing 

In order to mobilize underrepresented voters across Utah, our tools and strategy must be designed to meet people where they live, work, and organize. For too long, the campaign model has been built to reach only voters in large cities, while overlooking the critical and hardworking rural voices that make the fabric of our state and the country. Action begins with you. It begins with a long-term organizing strategy and the infrastructure to make it possible. If you live in one of the counties where we organize, use the drop-down menu below to find our local organizer, see who’s on your ballot, and get started.

Volunteer Statement


Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Rural Utah Project!


We are grateful for the outpouring of support from supporters across the Mountain West, who are eager to lend support to the Navajo Nation in a critical election year.


Due to the pandemic, the Rural Utah Project and our sister program, the Rural Arizona Project, are running a locally-based Get Out the Vote program with a hard-working staff of local organizers on the Navajo Nation. We appreciate your requests to volunteer, and we are running a remote-based volunteer program to make phone calls and send texts to voters. We are not, however, facilitating the transportation of individuals from outside of the Navajo Nation to volunteer in-person. The COVID-19 pandemic is impacting the lives and livelihood of many on the Navajo Nation, and we discourage travel altogether onto the Navajo Nation during election season. Instead, we recommend making a donation to organizations like ours running locally-based programs, including Yee Ha’ólníi Doo, Four Directions, and the Intertribal Council of Arizona.
