  • The voting system does not work in Utah because Brigham Young can find out whom everyone voted for and can use this knowledge to manipulate those who fear his power. Some have suggested that allowing women to vote in Utah might help eradicate polygamy, but women there are controlled by their husbands, making such policy ineffective. A discussion of the numbers of legal and illegal Mormon and Gentile voters in the territory. Unfortunately, one man in Utah may hold several political offices at once and may also be a leader in the Church at the same time, blurring the distinction between church and state. The Mormons are opposed to governments of men. The Mormon people themselves are good, but their social system is corrupted.
