Voter Registration in Wyoming
Current statistics indicate that just a tad more than half of the Wyoming populace is registered to vote. Take out the too-young crowd, felons, and others who for some reason forgo a legal right to vote, and you are still most likely left with quite a large number of eligible bodies that simply have not signed up for their civic responsibility.
Voting is an inalienable right of turning 18 and being thrust into adulthood, and in a state the size of Wyoming, the traditional "my vote won't count" excuse doesn't hold all that much water. One ballot cast can have a major impact on the state, county, and municipal level.
So why not sign up today? Here is the basic route to the ballot box.
In some states, residents can register to vote when applying for a driver's license or state ID card; however, Wyoming does not centralize voter collection through the Department of Transportation, which takes care of licensing. Instead, all voter registration is tallied at the county level through the local clerk.
You can find everything you need to know from registering to poll locations from the Secretary of State. The site also provides forms, ballot information, and county clerk locations.
During general (or national) elections when the voting drives are out and about, you may have the chance to register in a multitude of places ranging from a college campus to a grocery store. Generally, the people running the drive take care of getting the information to the county clerk.
Before you head out to register, make sure you're eligible to vote.
- You are a citizen of the United States.
- You are a citizen of Wyoming.
- You are 18 years of age.
- You are not a felon or have had your civil rights restored.
- If you take up residence in another county you need to re-register in that county.
- If you change your name or move to another precinct within the same county then you must contact the county clerk to make the update prior to the next election.
