Maxfield Urges People to Vote in Primary

Wyoming’s Secretary of State, Max Maxfield, is urging residents to vote in Wyoming’s primary election this month.

In a release sent from the Secretary of State’s office, Maxfield expressed a desire for Wyoming voters to uphold the state’s tradition of “high voter turnout” by registering and voting in the Primary Election.

“Voting in Wyoming is very convenient because state law allows absentee voting 40 days prior to election day and even permits voter registration at the polling place on election day,” Maxfield said.

State law also permits voters to change their party affiliation at the polls on election day in order to participate in one of the two major party’s candidate selection process.

Maxfield went on to say, “on August 21st, polling places will open at 7:00 a.m. and remain open until all those in line at 7:00 p.m. have cast their ballot.”

The Secretary of State’s website has a polling place locator to help voters identify their polling place, or voters may contact their county clerk. The polling place locator may be accessed here:

Maxfield reminded candidates and their supporters that the state’s electioneering laws prohibit any form of campaigning within one hundred yards of polling places when voting is being conducted. State law also prohibits canvassing or polling of voters, with the exception of exit polling by news media.

For more information about voter registration, absentee voting, or local elections, interested persons should contact their county clerk. Contact information for the county clerks is on the Secretary of State’s website
