Mormons account for 62 percent of the 2.5 million people living in Utah and hold virtually every elected office in the state. While some of my fellow evangelicals across the country have noted they could not vote for a Mormon, I have only voted this way for 21 years and have appreciated their conservative ideologies and policies as well as their strong commitment to the family values I hold dear.
