With less than four hours to go, County 10 checked in with the Fremont County Election Office for the latest primary election numbers.
Just before 3:30 pm today, a total of 3,788 voters have cast their ballots at one of the 8 vote centers here in Fremont County, according to County Clerk Julie Freese. The average age range of voters turning up at the centers is between 65-74.
A total of 5,118 absentee ballots were mailed this year, and so far 4,512 have been returned. Absentee ballots can be returned until 7:00 pm tonight in the drop box located at the back of the courthouse in Lander. If you can’t make it Lander, you can take the ballot to any one of the vote centers to relinquish and vote in-person.
Everything is about average right now, Freese shared. The primary election turnout tends to be lower than the general election.
Stay tuned as County 10 brings you updates throughout the evening.
