SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah is planning to spend $150,000 on a last-minute effort to get the word out about its switch to a caucus system.

The Deseret News reports (http://bit.ly/1ntNTdU ) that the state is mailing nearly 1 million reminders to Utah voters, notifying them that the political parties will hold caucuses, rather than the usual primaries, on March 22.

All-day online voting will also be available for Republicans who can’t attend the caucus in person, but voters have to sign up by March 15.

Utahns who want to vote for a Democratic presidential candidate can just show up at a caucus.

The 2016 Legislature is expected to appropriate the $150,000 to cover the mailings and a new page on the state’s elections website with information about the caucuses.
