It’s free! Well, mostly. No new voting machines or software are needed. Additionally, the ballot design is the same size as our current ballot, unlike in Ranked Choice Voting. This means that the cost of mailing ballots doesn’t increase at all! The only thing that does require money is voter education. Since approval voting is so simple, even the cost of voter education would be relatively low. Utah Approves also plans to help educate voters so the burden on the taxpayer is as low as possible.
