WY Voter Eligibility
Before you head out to register, make sure you're eligible to vote. You must:
- Be a citizen of the United States.
- Be a resident of Wyoming.
- Be 18 years old by or on the date of the election to wish to vote in.
- Had your voting rights restored.
NOTE: If you take up residence in another Wyoming county you will need to re-register in that county. If you change your name or move to another precinct within the same county, you must contact the county clerk to make the update prior to the next election.
Register to Vote in Wyoming
In Wyoming, you may register to vote:
- In person.
- By mail.
- At the polls on election day.
NOTE: Wyoming is exempt from the "Motor Voter" law; therefore, you cannot register to vote at a local Wyoming DMV office.
To register in person, visit your local town or county clerk and pick up a voter registration form. You may also fill out the Wyoming Voter Registration Application and Change Form before you visit the office, to save you time when you get there. Note, however, that the form must be signed in front of your county clerk.
To complete your voter registration by mail, you must fill out the Wyoming Voter Registration Application and Change Form in front of a notary or registry agent. You'll need to provide proof of your identification, which can include:
- Your WY driver's license.
- Valid U.S. passport.
- School or military ID.
Once you have filled out the registration form in front of the notary or registry agent:
- Sign the voter registration oath.
- Have the representative sign your form.
- Allow the representative to make copies of your proof of ID.
Mail the completed, signed, and notarized paperwork to your local county clerk's office.
At the Polls
If you haven't registered prior to election day, you can still register at the polls when you go to vote. Make sure to bring acceptable proof of identification that displays your full name and residence, such as your Wyoming driver's license.
Out-of-State Voter Registration
Military personnel stationed outside of WY and any U.S. citizens living overseas can register to vote online through the Federal Voting Assistance Program by filling out a Voter Registration and Absentee Ballot Request Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) (Form 76).
As long as your permanent or most recent U.S. address was in Wyoming, you can register to vote there.
Change Your Name or Address
To update your name and/or address on your Wyoming voter registration card, you must notify the county clerk prior to the next election.
You will have to re-register if you:
- Move to a different county.
- Didn't vote in the previous election.
See the section "Register to Vote in Wyoming" above if you need to re-register.
