The Utah Supreme Court's decision / opinion holding that electronic signatures are valid for purposes of an independent candidate's petition to be nominating as a candidate for a statewide election.

Per the ACLU's press release: "The Utah Supreme Court today issued an opinion validating the use of e-signatures in the electoral process. The Court’s opinion, the first of its kind nationwide, has the potential to increase significantly the ability of independent candidates to access the general election ballot, and thus to increase the opportunity for minority viewpoints to be heard and considered in election years."
