Check Your Voter Registration!



If you didn’t vote in the 2022 general election, you’re not registered to vote!

More than 1,900 Sublette County voters were removed from the voter registry since the 2022 General Election.

If you didn’t vote in the last general election, your name was removed from the list of registered voters. Those who have been removed must re-register to participate in this year’s elections.

Is your name among the list of those who need to re-register? Wyoming does not have online registration. There is no convenient “look up” to verify if your registration is active and your information is current. That’s why you should check your voter registration at the county clerk’s office.


To vote in the Primary Election on August 20, you must register to vote!


You may register to vote at the polls on Election Day (but expect lines and waiting times), or at the county courthouse 14 days prior to the election.


Here’s election information from the Sublette County Clerk:


"Purged Voters/Registering to Vote – In Wyoming clerks inactivate voter registrations of those that did not vote in a General Election and do not respond to a notice from the clerk’s office regarding the matter. Sublette County purged over 1,800 voters that didn’t vote in the 2022 General Election and didn’t respond to our notice. You may be one of those and if so you may want to register to vote now to vote in the 2024 elections. You can register any time by visiting the county clerk’s office. You can wait until Election Day but there will likely be lines and wait times.”


"Party Affiliation Changes – In the past voters were allowed to change their party affiliations at any time including on the day of any election. Effective this year voters can no longer change their affiliations beginning the first day of candidate filing through Primary Election Day. This means that you must change your party affiliation no later than May 15, 2024 to vote that way at the Primary Election on August 20. This will mean that those voters not affiliated with a major party will not have a ballot in the Primary Election in Sublette County because there will be no non-partisan races to vote on.”


"Absentee Ballots – Voters may now vote by absentee ballot 28 days prior to each election rather than the previous 45 days. Uniformed and overseas citizens (UOCAVA) are still authorized under federal law to vote 45 days prior to each election. Absentee ballots for the Primary and/or General Elections can be requested now with no excuse. Primary ballots will be mailed out July 23 and July 5 for UOCAVA voters and General Election ballots will be mailed October 8 or September 20 for UOCAVA.


Here’s information from the Lincoln County Clerk:

"Voter Registration – You may register to vote at the polls on Election Day or 14 days prior to the election at the following locations: Lincoln County Courthouse in Kemmerer, Lincoln County Branch Office in Afton or with any municipal clerk at the Town Hall.


"**ALREADY REGISTERED - POLITICAL PARTY CHANGE**

NEW! FOR A PRIMARY ELECTION, AN ELECTOR MAY DECLARE OR CHANGE PARTY AFFILIATION BY COMPLETING AN APPLICATION SIGNED BEFORE A NOTARIAL OFFICER OR ELECTION OFFICIAL AND FILING IT WITH THE COUNTY CLERK BEFORE THE FIRST DAY ON WHICH AN APPLICATION FOR NOMINATION MAY BE FILED UNDER W.S. 22-5-209. FOR THE 2024 PRIMARY, THAT DATE IS MAY 15, 2024.

"FOR A GENERAL ELECTION, AN ELECTOR MAY DECLARE OR CHANGE PARTY AFFILIATION BY COMPLETING AN APPLICATION SIGNED BEFORE A NOTARIAL OFFICER OR ELECTION OFFICIAL, AND FILING IT WITH THE COUNTY CLERK AFTER THE PRIMARY ELECTION AND NOT LESS THAN FOURTEEN (14) DAYS BEFORE THE GENERAL ELECTION OR AT THE POLLS ON THE DAY OF THE GENERAL ELECTION, OR WHEN REQUESTING AN ABSENTEE BALLOT FOR THE GENERAL ELECTION.


"ALL OTHER CHANGES TO CURRENT REGISTRATION MAY BE MADE 14 DAYS PRIOR TO THE PRIMARY OR GENERAL ELECTION OR MADE AT THE POLLS ON ELECTION DAY."
