Absentee Voting Begins In Teton County

September 28, 2012 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Teton County No Comments
Voter-Absentee

Absentee voting in Wyoming began yesterday, and continues through Monday, November 5th – the day before the election.  Teton County Clerk Sherry Daigle says anyone wishing to request an absentee ballot may do so by contacting their county clerk.  However, those requesting the ballots in person may only do so for themselves unless they have a written document from those others on whose behalf they wish to obtain a ballot. Daigle also says voting machines have been set up outside the county clerk’s office for ballots to be cast from now through November 5th.  The office is open from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm.  Daigle also says ballots may be requested through the mail by calling and requesting them. Wyoming has “no excuse” voting, meaning the voter does not need a medical or other excuse to vote absentee.  Any registered voter may request an absentee ballot.  The ballot then must be returned by 7:00 pm November 6th. Daigle says 80 ballots were mailed out last week to those who are overseas and went out Thursday to 794 local voters who requested them.  Altogether, she says, the request for absentee ballots here have been triple the requests for the primary election which she says serves as an indication of the interest in the upcoming election and the potential turn-out.  Consequently, she says the voter participation in the November 6th general election could be near or exceed 90 percent.  Four years ago, she adds, Teton County saw 97% of the registered voters participate in the election.

    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
