Casper, WY.  –  Wyoming officials have formed the Plan for Aging Voting Equipment task force to look into the process of replacing aging election equipment, that is nearing it’s end-of-life, in all 23 Wyoming counties.

The group will be tasked with determining what type of election equipment the state will need and then formulate a plan to pay for it.

Most of the equipment that would be replaced would be voter-facing equipment seen at polling locations.

Teton County Clerk Sherry Daigle says the stated that it is of “paramount importance that our voting systems be unfailingly reliable.”

The task force met for the first time in October, and will meet on a when-needed basis throughout 2018.
