Are you prepared for Election Day?

With less than two weeks until Election Day, it’s important to remember that every vote counts! The right to vote is one of the most basic rights we have as Americans. In order to participate in our democracy, all voters need to understand the rules in their state, register on time and show up at the correct polling place. Follow these easy steps to make sure your voice is heard in this election:

Election Day is Tuesday, November 6th

Wyoming polls are open from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm

Download our 2012 Voter Empowerment Card (pdf). Keep it as a reference, take it with you to the polls, and share the information with your friends and family.
• Make sure you are registered to vote. If you are not already registered, Wyoming allows qualified voters to register at the polls on Election Day. However, you must bring an acceptable form of ID to the polls for same day registration. (example: passport or Wyoming driver’s license)
• Locate your polling place. Polls are open on Election Day from 7:00 am - 7:00 pm.
• Consider voting early or absentee. If you plan to vote on Election Day, go early to avoid the rush.
Contact your Wyoming County Clerk’s office with any further questions.

There is no more important right in our democracy than the right to vote. We encourage all Wyoming voters to exercise their fundamental right to participate in the political process, and vote in the upcoming election.
