There will be no paper ballots at the polling places on Election Day. All votes will be cast on electronic recording devices or touch screens. If a voter wishes to have an absentee ballot mailed to them, they will receive a paper ballot.
Absentee voting begins on September 27. Voters can request a paper ballot by calling our office (633-4242), sending an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or sending a written request (P.O. Box 608, Cheyenne, WY 82003). The absentee poling place in the Atrium between the County Governmental Complex and the Historic Courthouse will be open from 8:15 a.m. until 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday, with the exception of October 8th. The absentee polling place will be equipped with electronic touch screens only, just like the Election Day polling places.
Election results will be available on this website beginning at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Election Day. All results are UNOFFICIAL until after the County Canvassing Board meets on the Friday following the election. Results from the polling places will be released first, followed by the results from absentee ballots. As the polling place results come in, it will show 100% of the precinct reporting; however, the results are not 100% until the absentee results have been added.
