Elections

About Elections:

Elections are the most fundamental, and important, function of our Republic. As such, elections are conducted with reverence and diligent attention to detail in order to deliver confident and secure results. To ensure the election process is secure and accurate, Wyoming State Statute §22-2-103 designates the Secretary of State as the chief elections officer of the state and the County Clerk the chief election officer of the county. A number of decisions are made through elections, from who will serve in public office to what taxes shall be levied. These important decisions rest in the hands of those tasked with conducting the election!
