Imagine an election where the candidate with the highest approval rating wins. No games, no spoilers, no more feeling forced to choose the lesser of two evils. We can make that happen.

Nate earned his associate’s degree from Weber State University and transferred to earn his BS from The University of Utah. Nate founded Utah Approves in 2020 after witnessing how the election process wouldn’t allow many to vote for their favorite, and instead feel restricted to choosing the lesser of two evils.
Founded in 2020, Utah Approves is a nonpartisan nonprofit working to reform our elections to produce a government that represents you again. We believe this country has a powerful foundation in the constitution and the powers and freedoms it gives to the people. Unfortunately, we are witnessing a time of increasing polarization and a government that doesn’t listen to us. But it’s not too late, especially if we band together under a common cause. We are all fed up with corruption and feeling like our voice and vote don’t matter anymore and we’re ready to change that.
