How to Register, Vote and Track Your Ballot in Wyoming

Posted on 11/29/22 by Catherine Maddux

Voters stand at voting machines in Cheyenne, Wyoming.

En español | Wyoming offers several ways to register to vote, including online, by mail and in person. All who cast ballots at the polls are required to present an acceptable form of identification.

The state's Nov. 8 general election decided races for seats in the U.S. House of Representatives and the state Senate and House, as well as for governor and other statewide offices.

  • Upcoming elections: Information is not yet available but will be published on the Wyoming elections website.
  • Absentee voting: All registered voters are eligible to vote absentee without an excuse.
  • Early in-person voting: Voters can submit completed absentee ballots at their county clerk’s office starting 45 days before Election Day.
  • Voting at the polls: Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Find your polling place on your county clerk’s website or by contacting your county clerk..

Wyoming’s redistricting plan for the state legislature was enacted in 2022, adding one seat to the Senate, for a total of 31, and two additional seats to the House of Representatives, for a total of 62. The redrawing of the legislative districts could change your polling place and which candidates appear on your ballot.

Wyoming residents can register by mail, at their local county clerk’s office or at the polls on Election Day. 

Either way, you’ll need your state driver’s license or the last four digits of your Social Security number and an acceptable form of ID, which includes a U.S. passport; a federal, state, local or military ID card; a tribal ID; a Medicare or Medicaid card; or a photo ID from the University of Wyoming, a Wyoming community college or a state public school. A complete list of acceptable IDs is on the state election website. 

Voters can request an absentee ballot any day of the year (except on Election Day), but only for elections occurring that year. 

Mail your completed absentee ballot to your county clerk’s office or drop it off in person. Absentee ballots must be received in the county clerk's office by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Ballots arriving after the deadline will not be counted. Voters are not allowed to drop their completed absentee ballot at the polls on Election Day — they must take it to the county clerk's office. Voters should call their county clerk’s office to check on Election Day hours.

Contact your county clerk to check the status of your ballot.

Early in-person absentee voting is permitted at your county clerk’s office 45 days before Election Day. 

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Find your polling place on your county clerk’s website or by contacting your county clerk. Some counties have drop boxes and vote centers, which allow voters from any district within the county to cast their ballots at these sites.

All Wyoming residents who cast ballots at the polls are required to present an acceptable form of identification, such as a driver’s license, student ID card, U.S. passport or valid Medicare or Medicaid card. A complete list of approved IDs is on the state election website.
