CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) – Laramie County is on its 16th day of early and absentee voting. The general election is also three weeks away.
However, Laramie County Clerk Debra Lee says voting is going steady and those ballots are split between absentee and in-person voting.
There are now about 4,000 votes.
Absentee drop boxes remain in place thanks in part to support from county clerks across the state and the community.
According to a Laramie County employee, these drop-off boxes are useful for people with irregular work hours and seniors with fragile health who don’t want to be exposed to large groups.
All votes must be received by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.
Lee said voter safety remains a top priority, adding that if voters are concerned about that safety, the county clerk’s office is the place to go.
“Get the right information, I mean they can certainly contact us and they can contact the secretary of state’s office, but you know, check your facts and check with the source,” said Debra Lee, an employee of Laramie County.
Lee says county clerks will continue to follow security protocols, chain of custody, ballot reconciliation and the many checks and balances written into voting laws and regulations.
