What If My Address Has Changed
- If you moved to Wyoming from another state, you must register in Wyoming to be able to vote. You may register on Election Day by providing documents establishing
your identity and residency. If you do not take advantage of election-day registration, you can register by mail
or in person at the county clerkâs office, but you must do so thirty days before
the election (after January 1, 2011, you can submit your registration up to 14 days before the election).
- If you moved from out of state, you may register to vote the same day you become a resident of the State of Wyoming.
- If you moved within the same county, you should notify your local election official to
update your registration records. If you moved to a different county, you should complete a new
registration form to update your registration records on or before Election Day.
- At School. In Wyoming, your voting residency is the place you currently physically live, and have
the intention of returning to when absent. Students can establish residency in Wyoming if they have a present
intention to remain at their Wyoming school address for the time being, and they intend to make it their principal
home. Any other interpretation of the residency laws is unconstitutional. Voting in Wyoming is a declaration of
residency, making you subject to other laws that govern state residents.
- At Home. Students who lived in Wyoming before moving elsewhere to attend school, and who wish
to establish or keep their Wyoming voting residency (i.e., at their parentsâ Wyoming address), should have no
problem doing so unless they have already registered to vote in another state. You do not gain or lose your
voting residency just by attending college or university out of state.
- You will lose your Wyoming residency by establishing residency in your new state.
Registering to vote in another state is automatically considered an abandonment of your Wyoming residency.
If you have established residency in another state and are moving back to Wyoming with the intent to reside
here, you will have to follow the normal registration procedures to re-register in Wyoming.
