Voter Registration Rules Apply

by Jackson Hole Radio News

With only days left before the November 6th Midterm General Election, Wyoming Secretary of State Edward Buchanan is reminding Wyoming residents that if they did not vote during the 2016 General Election or are not registered to vote, that they may register to vote on Election Day itself. Wyoming’s law allows Wyoming residents to both register and vote on Election Day if they provide a valid Wyoming driver’s license. If a person does not bring their valid driver’s license to the polls, then a voter must provide their driver’s license number and another acceptable form of identification. If a prospective voter has not been issued a Wyoming driver’s license, they must provide the last four digits of their social security number and another form of acceptable identification or more than one form of acceptable identification if they have neither driver’s license or a social security number. Furthermore, Buchanan says if a voter forgets their Wyoming driver’s license or if they don’t know their driver’s license number on Election Day, they can still cast a provisional ballot. A voter will then have the responsibility of providing the necessary documentation to their county clerk by the close of business on the following day. Polls open at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday, November 6th and close at 7:00 p.m.
