How to vote in the 2022 Wyoming General Election

Every eligible voter must make their voice heard at the ballot box in 2022. Here’s a quick rundown on how to do so.  

Get ready to vote and make your voice heard in Wyoming’s 2022 General Election! 

The fight for voting rights remains as critical as ever. Politicians across the country continue to engage in voter suppression, efforts that include additional obstacles to registration, cutbacks on early voting, and strict voter identification requirements.  

We’ve listed below what you need to know to be prepared, get your vote counted, and make sure your voice is heard.  

The basics  

Requirements: You must be 18 years old, a U.S. citizen, and a resident of Wyoming as well as a resident of the precinct in which you register. If you are voting in person in Wyoming you are required to show a form of identification that the state of Wyoming considers an acceptable form of identification. See our Know Your Rights page for more information on local Voter ID laws.  

Voting if you’re attending college: You can register to vote at your school address or your home address, whichever you consider your primary legal residence. 

Voting if you’re experiencing homelessness: You don’t need a home to vote, but you must identify a place of residence (which can be a street corner, a park, a shelter, or any other place where you usually stay). You must also provide a mailing address, such as a shelter or advocacy organization, at which you can receive mail. 

Changes for 2022 

Redistricting efforts have changed some boundaries of state House and Senate districts. These may affect which candidates appear on your ballot and where you can vote in person. Check the Wyoming Secretary of State’s website for more information. 

A non-exhaustive list of who is on your ballot  

  • U.S House of Representatives: Harriet Hageman (R), Lynnette Grey Bull (D) 
  • Governor: Incumbent Gov. Mark Gordon (R), Theresa Livingston (D) 
  • State Senate: 15 of 30 seats 
  • State House: All 60 seats 
  • Other statewide offices 

Voting absentee 

Wyoming voters can request an absentee ballot two ways, by mail or in person.  

Voters can request an absentee ballot any day of the year (except on Election Day), but only for elections occurring that year.  
To ensure your vote is counted, mail your completed absentee ballot to your county clerk’s office or drop it off in person. Absentee ballots must be received in the county clerk's office by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Ballots arriving after the deadline will not be counted. Voters are not allowed to drop their completed absentee ballot at the polls on Election Day — they must take it to the county clerk's office. Voters should call their county clerk’s office to check on Election Day hours. 

Voting on Election Day 

Election Day: The 2022 General Election is on Nov. 8, 2022 with polling places operating between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.  

Finding your polling location: On Election Day you must vote at your assigned polling place. Find your polling place and hours of operation by contacting your county clerk.  

If you are running late: You have the right to vote if you’re in line or inside your polling place when the polls close. Once handed a ballot after the polls close you only have 30 minutes to cast your vote. 

Getting time off: If your work schedule would make it practically impossible for you to vote in-person while the polls are open, your employer is encouraged by state law to give you time off to vote, however time off may be without pay. Ask your employer for time off before Election Day and confirm the hours you get off. 

Getting involved in the political process in Wyoming  

  • Become a precinct worker: Precinct workers are key players in running polling places on Election Day. This paid position is recruited by your county clerk. Find out more by contacting your county clerk. 
  • Pledge to vote in every election: Add your name to a growing list of Wyoming voters who are informed, engaged, and ready for what lies ahead.
