Frequently Asked Questions

Wyoming does not have a mandated procedure for “curing” (“fixing”) absentee ballots.

If a county clerk receives a defective absentee ballot, the clerk may notify you of the defect and offer an opportunity to fix it – depending on the nature of the defect. For example, a clerk may contact you if the returned envelope and accompanying oath are missing your signature, date or address, which is considered a clerical error. This notification is not required by state law, but rather is discretionary on the part of the county clerks.  Note that a clerk will not contact you if the ballot itself contains any incorrect markings or overvotes because absentee ballots are not tabulated until Election Day.

The cured ballot must be received by the appropriate county clerk’s office by 7 pm on Election Day.
