People Can Register Now to Vote Absentee

Wyoming's primary elections aren't until Aug. 21, but people can apply now to vote absentee.

Sheridan County Clerk Eda Schunk Thompson said there are four ways that people can register to cast an absentee ballot in this year's elections.

Thompson said election staff will also help people who aren't registered to vote. According to information from the Secretary of State's office, absentee ballots may be requested at any time before the day of an election.

There also are no requirements in requesting an absentee ballot, other than that the individual is a registered Sheridan County voter. Election Supervisor Brenda Kekich said in order to vote for partisan candidates in the primary elections, a person has to declare a political party. But anyone may vote in the general elections in November.

Thompson said that, although 2018 isn't a presidential election year, a number of offices will be up for election this year, including three county commissioners and the county assessor, attorney, clerk, coroner, sheriff, treasurer and the clerk of district court.
