Voting in 2020: When, where, and how

JACKSON, Wyo. — Election season is upon us. This year, it falls in the midst of a global pandemic, which threatens to complicate the voting process.

The Teton County Clerk’s Office is encouraging all voters to vote absentee-by-mail this year. Luckily, voting by mail has always been an easy option in Wyoming.

Absentee voting is underway for Wyoming and Teton County Primary Elections until August 17. Voters can request and send absentee ballots to the Teton County Clerk’s office, P.O. Box 1727 Jackson, WY 83001-1727.

The US Postal Service recommends 14 days to send and receive ballots. Make sure to get your ballot in the mail early to ensure your vote is counted. The last day to request a mail-in ballot in Wyoming is November 2, but election day is November 3, so request yours sooner rather than later.

Absentee voting also allows voters to vote early, in person, in Teton County’s absentee polling place, located in the basement of the Teton County Administration Building at 200 S Willow Street.

Early and absentee voting ends August 17 for the Primary Election. The early absentee window for the General Election is September 18 to November 2. The absentee polling site is open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for 45 days prior to the 2020 Primary Election and 2020 General Election. For the Primary Election, it will be open from July 2 to August 17. For the General Election, it will be open from September 18 to November 2.

Keep in mind that the absentee polling site is not open on Election Day (August 18 Primary, November 3 General). You must vote at a designated vote center on Election Day.

The easiest way to register to vote before election day is to stop by the Teton County Clerk’s office at 200 S Willow Street, Jackson, WY 83001. Make sure you bring a valid Wyoming driver’s license. If you don’t have one, use these instructions to see what other forms of I.D. are acceptable.

Voter registration, address, and party changes will still be possible at a polling place on the day of the election.
