More than 4000 voters, representing nearly two percent (2%) of registered voters, have already cast their Primary Election ballots, according to figures released today by the Secretary of State.
“Across the state, there were 10,010 requests for absentee ballots and of these 4,174 voters have already returned their voted ballots to the county clerks,” said Max Maxfield, Secretary of State.
Absentee voting for the Primary began on July 10 and ends on Aug. 18, the day before the Primary. Voted ballots, returned by mail or in person, must be received in the clerk’s office not later than 7:00 p.m. on Primary Election Day, August 19.
Wyoming is one of 27 states that allows any qualified voter to vote absentee without providing an excuse.
Registered voters may request an absentee ballot by contacting their county clerk. Contact information for county clerks may be found on the Secretary of State’s website at http://soswy.state.wy.us/Elections/Docs/WYCountyClerks.pdf
