Election Law
Why not start the new year making the Republicans mad? Well, some Republicans. Learn about Senate Bill 54 from the experts—Taylor Morgan, executive director of Count My Vote and Justin Lee, deputy director of elections/Lieutenant Governor's Office. Yes, this was the law in 2014—a dual path to candidacy through petitions and/or conventions. But the GOP just loves the caucus system, so it's challenging the law. The Weber event will teach you about a new signature-gathering effort. Weber State University, Hurst Center, Dumke Legacy Hall, Ogden, 801-626-6252, Wednesday, Jan. 13, 7-8:30 p.m., Weber.edu/WalkerInstitute/Calendar.html

No, you don't have to be LDS—you just have to be interested in genealogy. Whether you're just getting interested in genealogy, or a longtime genealogist, there's something for you in the next meeting of the Utah Valley Technology and Genealogy Group (UVTAGG). Randy Wilson, FamilySearch Information Architect, will talk about FamilySearch: What's in it for You and How Can You Help. Six classes including "Ask an Expert" follow. Online dues are $10/year. LDS "Red Chapel," 4050 North Timpview Drive (650 East), Provo, 801-225-6106, Saturday, Jan. 9, 9 a.m.-noon, UVTAGG.com

Political forum
Take this opportunity to ask your legislators some of the hard questions. You might just get some answers. The League of Women Voters of Salt Lake and Salt Lake and Wasatch chapters of the American Association of University Women are sponsoring a free public Legislative Forum including Rep. Brian King, D-Salt Lake; Rep. Sophia DiCaro, R-West Valley; Sen. Jani Iwamoto, D-Salt Lake; and Sen. Brian Shiozawa, R-Salt Lake. Girl Scouts of Utah Building, 445 E. 4500 South, Murray, Saturday, Jan. 9, 9:30-noon
