Today (May 16) marks the start of the filing period for candidates for Wyoming's 2024 primary election.

Statewide offices on the ballot this year include the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Republican John Barrasso, a long-time incumbent. Wyoming's lone U.S. House seat currently held by Republican Harriet Hageman, who was elected to her first term in 2022, is also on the ballot. The Senate seat is up for election every 6 years while the U.S. House seats are on the ballot every two years.

All even-numbered Senate seats are on the ballot this year in the Wyoming Legislature. Those terms run for four years. Every State House seat is also up for election, with those seats carrying two-year terms.

In Laramie County, that means the following Legislative seats are on the ballot, according to the Laramie County Clerk's Office:

State Senate Districts 4, 6, and 8
State House of Representative Districts 4 (shared with Platte Co.), 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 41, 42, 43, 44, and 61

Also on the ballot in Laramie County:

County Commissioners (2 seats)
Assessor (Remainder of the unexpired term)
Precinct Committee Officers (Primary only)

Cheyenne Mayor, City Council Seats Also On The Ballot

The office of the Mayor of Cheyenne, currently held by incumbent Patrick Collins, is also up for election, as are several Cheyenne City Council seats. Elections for Cheyenne Mayor and City Council are non-partisan, meaning candidates don't formally affiliate with political parties and are not nominated by party primaries. Instead, the two top vote-getters for each seat advance to the November General election, assuming that more than one candidate runs for those offices.

As part of Townsquare Media of Cheyenne's election coverage, we will publish the names of candidates for state, county, and city offices regularly.

Wyoming's Primary Election will be held on August 20th, while the U.S. General Election is scheduled for November 5.
