Constitutional Amendment A

 Several amendments to the Utah Constitution are included on the election ballot this year. Constitutional Amendment A proposes to make a technical wording change in the oath of office that elected and appointed officers are required to take. As explained on, the current Utah Constitution requires officers to swear to support, obey and defend the Constitution of the United States and “the Constitution of this State.” Constitution Amendment A simply changes the wording from “the Constitution of this State” to “the Constitution of the State of Utah.” It is accepted that this amendment is a correction and no arguments were listed against Constitutional Amendment A.
