Laramie County Clerk: Final Count Shows 5100 Voted Early
Laramie County Clerk Debra Lee says the final tally shows 5100 Laramie County residents voted early in the 2017 sixth-penny sales tax election. Lee says that percentage is up from the last time the county held a May special election in 2008.
About 10 percent of eligible voters cast ballots before election day that year. Lee says that while it's extremely difficult to predict turnout 2017 special election, the large early vote might indicate a bigger-than-usual turnout for a special election.
Polls are open until 7 p.m. today and anyone in line at 7 p.m. will be allowed to vote. Laramie County residents over the age of 18 who are not convicted felons can register to vote at the polls with a government-issued ID such as a driver's license. Convicted felons who have had their voting rights restored can also legally vote.
Laramie County is also one of the few areas in Wyoming that allow people vote at any of 12 voting centers rather than an assigned polling place. You can see a list of voting centers, their locations, and estimated wait times to vote by clicking here.
