Many residents may not be aware of this, but Fruit Heights City is the only city in Davis County that continues to hold an Electoral Caucus Meeting instead of a Primary Election. This year Fruit Heights City has scheduled to hold its Caucus Meetings on August 15, 2017 at 7:00 pm at the Fruit Heights City Hall; this will be the same night as the Primary Elections.
In 1939, when Fruit Heights City became a town, City leaders organized the caucuses with two non-partisan parties; the Pinecone and the Sagebrush parties. During election years, these two parties gather together to nominate candidates that will run in the upcoming election, these candidates are nominated by the residents and then voted on by the members of the Pinecone and Sagebrush parties. This year there will be two (2) City Council seats and the Mayors seat. Each party will need to nominate two (2) City Council members and one (1) Mayoral Candidate that will be on the ballot for the 2017 General Election.
