In-Person Absentee Voting

You can vote in-person absentee in your state.

How Vote By Mail Works 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 May 1st, 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.

  • Return in person to your county clerk's office by May 2nd at 7 p.m.
  • Or stamp and mail your ballot -  ballots must be received by May 2nd. We recommend mailing your ballot at least two weeks before as the post office is not always reliable. The best intentions or postmark will not matter if your ballot is received after May 2nd - your ballot will not count.
