CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming Secretary of State Edward Buchanan has mailed an absentee ballot request form to all registered voters in the state.

An absentee ballot request form in Casper, Wyo. sent to Wyoming voters on Monday, June 1, 2020.

Voters can fill the form out and mail it back or hand deliver it to their county clerk’s office.

They can request an absentee ballot for August’s primary, the November general election or both.

It comes as election officials hope to limit the number of people who vote in-person to prevent COVID-19 from spreading.

“Trying to keep the least amount of people at the polls as possible, trying to recognize social distancing protecting not only the public but our election judges as well,” Natrona County Clerk Tracy Good said.

Good, a Republican, said people can also request an absentee ballot by calling their county clerk’s office.

Every Wyoming voter can vote by mail.

The primary is Aug. 18. Absentee ballots go out starting July 2.
