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.
