Some voters switch party registration, a dancer shares her story, and underlying issues in Utah’s beauty industry

Some Democrats (and unaffiliated voters) are switching their registration to Republican to participate in the GOP primary elections. A Utah dancer comes forward with a story of online harassment by a local choreographer — prompting a flood of #MeToo responses. And activists say underlying issues in the state’s beauty industry perpetuate hair discrimination for Black Utahns.
