When are the elections and what times are polls open?
In even-numbered years, the primary election is held on the first Tuesday after the third Monday in August. The general election is held on the Tuesday following the first Monday in November. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., or until the last person in line at 7 p.m. has voted.
Where do I vote?
Enter your address in our Polling Place Locator, found on our website or contact your county clerk’s office.
What do I need to bring with me when I vote?
Wyoming does not require photo ID for the purpose of voting. However, if you registered by mail and are voting in a federal election for the first time, you must show photo ID or a document that has both your name and residence address.
Does my boss have to give me time off to vote?
Wyoming law entitles voters to one hour, other than the meal hour, to vote. However, the law does not apply to certain categories of employees, such as some federal workers or those who have three or more consecutive nonworking hours during the time polls are open.
What if I am refused the right to vote?
You may vote a provisional ballot. In order for your vote to be counted, you must provide proof of your eligibility to vote to the county clerk no later than close of business the day following the election.
