Book Nook: The Wyoming Voter’s Guide 2020


Susan B. Anthony said, “Someone struggled for your right to vote! Use it!”  On Aug. 18, Wyomingites were able to vote in the primary election. But if you missed it, don’t worry. The general election will be held Nov. 3.

Don’t know how to register? There are several ways to do this.

You can register to vote at the county clerk’s office through Oct. 19, for the general election.

If you miss the Oct. 19, deadline, just go to your polling place for the general election on Nov. 3, and register to vote there.

If you are confused by all this and just want to vote by mail-in ballot, go to the county clerk’s office up until Nov. 2. They will get you registered and hooked up with an absentee ballot at that time. Remember to mail back your ballot, or deliver it to your county clerk, by 7 p.m. on election day.

How to request an absentee ballot: Contact your county clerk to request an absentee ballot. Ballots will be mailed as early as 45 days before the election. Again, remember to mail back your ballot, or deliver it to your county clerk, by 7 p.m. on election day.

Aren’t sure if you are registered? If you voted in the 2018 midterms, great! You’re still registered to vote. If you did not vote two years ago, moved counties or changed your name, check with your county clerk to ensure your registration. 

What is on the ballot: This year, we will be voting for U.S. President and Vice President, U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, Wyoming State Senate (even numbered districts), Wyoming State House (all districts), Judicial Offices, Municipal Offices, School Board Members, Community College Trustees, and one Proposed Constitutional Amendment. 

Need to contact your Lincoln County Clerk? Give April Brunski or her staff a call at (307)877-2021. You may also email her at [email protected] or visit the Clerk’s Office website at http://www.lcwy.org.
