Students have a decision about where to register to vote.

You have a right to register to vote at the address you consider the place where you live, whether that is your family's home or the place where you attend school. You should update your registration anytime this home address changes.

You may only be registered and vote in one location.

How Can I Vote?

By Mail

All registered Wyoming voters may vote by mail. You can fill out the absentee application form and return it to your county clerk, or you may request an absentee ballot by email, phone, or in person at your county clerk’s office. Absentee ballot requests must be received before close of business on the day before Election Day, though be sure to leave yourself enough time to receive the ballot by mail and return your completed ballot before the deadline.

You can register to vote at the same time you apply for an absentee ballot by submitting a completed voter registration form and a copy of the required ID with your absentee ballot application.

Completed absentee ballots must be received at the county clerk’s office by 7 p.m. on Election Day.

Contact your county clerk’s office to check your absentee ballot’s status.

Election Day

Voting sites will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. If you are in line by the closing time, then you have the right to vote.

Common Questions/Concerns

Registering to Vote Does Not Affect Your:

Federal Financial Aid

Where you register to vote will not affect federal financial aid such as Pell Grants, Perkins or Stafford loans, or your dependency status for FAFSA.

Status as a Dependent on Your Parents’ Taxes

Being registered to vote at a different address from your parents does not prevent them from claiming you as a dependent on their taxes.

Tuition Status

Being deemed out-of-state for tuition purposes does not prevent you from choosing to register to vote in your campus community.


Will registering to vote in Wyoming affect my driver’s license or car registration?

As a full-time student in Wyoming, you may have to make these changes regardless of whether you register to vote in Wyoming. For more information, contact the Wyoming Department of Motor Vehicles.
