Early voting underway in Natrona County
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Though Election Day isn’t for another six weeks, early voting has already begun across Wyoming for the 2020 general election. Absentee ballots have also been mailed.
“We’re about a 30 percent absentee request per registered voter count right now, which is quite a bit more than we’ve seen in previous years,” Natrona County Clerk Tracy Good said.
Good, a Republican, said her office had already received about 8,700 absentee ballot requests as of Monday afternoon.
She said she’s also seen an increase in in-person early voting. About 150 people voted in-person through the first day and a half of early voting. It began Sept. 18.
Early voting in Natrona County takes place at the clerk’s office, which is located in the old Natrona County Courthouse at 200 N. Center St. in Casper.
People already who aren’t registered to vote can register in the clerk’s office.
“In the county clerk’s office you can register to vote up until 14 days prior to the election. Any time after that, if you register, you must cast your ballot within the clerk’s office or you can register at the polls on Election Day, which is November 3, and cast your ballot at the same time,” Good said.
Early voting is open in Natrona County between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday through Nov. 2.
People can still request an absentee ballot by calling the clerk’s office or by going to its website.
