CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The polls are open in Wyoming for the 2018 General Election.

Wyoming residents are being asked to choose a new governor. Democrat Mary Throne and Republican Mark Gordon are the two main contenders.

Democrat Gary Trauner is seeking to unseat U.S. Sen. John Barrasso while environmental consultant Greg Hunter is challenging Republican U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney. Both Barrasso and Cheney are seeking their second election victories for their seats.

Voter registration figures show especially tough odds for Democrats this year. Registered Republicans outnumber Democrats by well over 4-1 in the state.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

The National Weather Service is calling for scattered snow showers across much of the state Tuesday, with snow accumulating at higher elevations.
