PARK CITY, Utah (AP) - Utah Democrats voted Saturday to comply with a new state law changing the candidate nomination process.

The Deseret News reports (https://bit.ly/1GCBaN1 ) delegates to the state convention in Park City adopted changes to county bylaws that bring the party in compliance with the law passed by the 2014 Legislature.

Peter Corroon, who was re-elected Saturday to a second term as state party chairman, says it shouldn’t necessarily be political insiders who decide which Democrats should be on the ballot.

The law gives political parties two paths to choosing candidates. One would require a party to use primary elections. The other path preserves the state’s longtime caucus and convention system by requiring any candidates emerging from that nominating process to square off in a primary election against candidates who collect signatures.
