Notice: Mail-in voting is a convenient and safe way to vote, but your ballot might not count if it’s submitted late or with errors. So follow the directions below on how to vote early or absentee and make your vote count in Wyoming.
Voting by mail is a two step process in Wyoming.
Step 1: Request your ballot NOW. The deadline to request your ballot by mail is Aug. 15th, the day before Election Day. We recommend that you apply as soon as possible. If possible, we suggest applying for your ballot at least two weeks in advance to allow for plenty of time to complete and return it.
Step 2: Complete and return your ballot ASAP.
Remember to sign your return ballot. After you complete your ballot, sign the affidavit on the return envelope. If you forget to sign the oath, your ballot will be tossed and your vote will not count.
If you return your ballot by mail, you must add a stamp when mailing in your ballot.
You can also drop off your ballot in person at your local elections office.
Anyone may return a ballot your behalf but this issue is currently a part of pending legislation, and is subject to change before this year’s election.
