Vote Centers Replace Precinct Polling Places
Notices Will Be Placed At Old Voting Locations
A change in voting locations might cause confusion for those casting their ballots tomorrow.
No longer will precinct polling places be utilized but instead, new ‘vote centers’ will allow any registered Teton County voter to cast their ballot at any of the locations.
In previous elections, voters were assigned a voting location based on their precinct. But now Teton County has streamlined the process. Authorized by the Wyoming Legislature last year, County Clerk Sherry L. Daigle announced the Vote Center plan for the 2016 election cycle.
Vote Centers allow voters greater flexibility in casting their ballots on Election Day. As an added benefit, the centers also allow counties to decrease costly expenses by reducing the number of polling places and staffing.
“Simply stated, a Vote Center is a polling location where any voter can go to cast a ballot, regardless of where they live in Teton County,” Daigle said.
On Tuesday, Teton County residents may vote at ANY one of the following Vote Centers from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
TETON COUNTY LIBRARY
125 Virginian Ln, Jackson, WY
TETON COUNTY/JACKSON RECREATION CENTER
155 E. Gill Ave., Jackson, WY
OLD WILSON SCHOOLHOUSE COMMUNITY CENTER
5655 Main St., Wilson, WY
TETON COUNTY WEED & PEST BUILDING
7575 US-89, Jackson, WY
ALTA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
15 Alta School Rd., Alta, WY
MORAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
501 Moran Ct., Moran, WY
If these locations are not convenient on Election Day, citizens can also vote by absentee ballot any time prior to Election Day by stopping by the absentee polling site in the basement of the County Administration Building (where you get your license plates) at 200 S. Willow St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Complete voter registration and polling information is available online at www.TetonCounty.org/cc.
