Randall Jeppesen, KSL Newsradio Utah County Democrats are turning to technology to try and get their message out in an area that's been a stronghold for the Republican Party.
When you click onto www.utahcountydems.com you find a YouTube video saying, "Hi! You've found us. We're the Utah County Democrats. Welcome to our Web site."
Utah County Democratic Party Chairman Richard Davis says it's just the start of the effort to use new technology like YouTube, blogs, podcasting and more to reach out to more people, especially younger voters.
He says it's time that Utah County Democrats are heard. "You're already seeing that, but you're going to see much more," he said.
Davis won't elaborate on what they're going to do next, but he says voters are looking for alternatives to what they've got now.
