Secretary of State Murray Encourages Wyoming to Vote

Posted in

The 2016 General Election in Wyoming is tomorrow, and Secretary of State Ed Murray is encouraging all eligible voters to cast their vote between 7 am and 7 pm on Election Day.

Murray said that Wyoming law requires that employees be given one hour off of work to vote on Election Day. He said the law stipulates that the hour off may not be a meal hour and may be selected at the employer’s discretion. He said that from absentee voting, to the guaranteed hour on Election Day, there is no excuse not to vote.

According to the Secretary of State’s Office, there have already been almost 72,000 absentee ballots requested by voters in the state, and over 63,000 absentee, or in-person absentee ballots have been cast.
