Cheyenne, WY.   –   The Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office is reminding Wyoming citizens that absentee voting for the 2018 Primary Election began last, Friday, July 6th. Wyoming allows any registered Wyoming voter the ability to request and then cast an absentee ballot through their county clerk either by mail or in-person at a county clerk’s office. “I encourage all eligible Wyoming voters to study their candidate choices, become an informed voter, and then exercise their right to vote by casting a ballot in the upcoming 2018 Primary Election whether in person or absentee. The outcome of races across our state this August will not only determine the candidate choices placed before voters in November, but also the future of our State,” said Secretary of State Edward Buchanan.

Absentee voting continues until Monday, August 20th, the day before the Primary Election. Requests for ballots may be made to a county clerk’s office by phone, email, fax, or in person. Additionally, several counties will open absentee polling places that will remain open until the day before Election Day. “The voter decides when to vote, either early by absentee or on Election Day. Therefore, truly there is little excuse not to vote,” stated Election Director Kai Schon. To cast an absentee ballot, register to vote, or to view precinct by precinct sample ballots, voters should visit their county clerk’s office.
