WYOMING Voter ID Information

Registered Wyoming voters must show ID at the polls to vote. If you are a registered voter but didn't bring your ID to the polling place, you may cast a provisional ballot. In order for your ballot to be counted, you must provide the required information and documentation before the polls close on Election Day, or before the close of business on the day following the election at the county clerk's office.

Sometimes poll workers are confused and will ask for ID for voting. Voters may also be confused and believe that they cannot vote without ID.  VoteRiders can help with up-to-date resources and free assistance to help you with WY voter ID questions.
