How to vote by absentee ballot

Register to vote

Download the Wyoming voter registration form and take it with you to a notary.  Fill the form out in front a notary and have the form notarized.  Mail the completed form, and a copy of your ID if you are a first-time Wyoming voter, back to your County Clerk.

NOTE: Do NOT use the national form - Wyoming doesn't accept it.

Verify your voter registration

It's best to verify your voter registration before applying for your absentee ballot.  If there's a problem with your registration, register again before proceeding.

NOTE: Most people receive their voter registration cards in the mail 2-3 weeks after registering to vote. Don't worry if you lost your voter registration card. You don't actually need it to vote.

Make sure you're qualified to vote by absentee ballot

Good news!  Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot in Wyoming.
