Fremont County has moved to Vote Centers as the method of voting this year due to a continued lack of election judges available to help oversee the polling locations, according to a press release from Fremont County Clerk Julie Freese.
With this change, polling locations have been reduced from 17 to 8. The good news is, you may vote at ANY one of the 8 locations on Election Day.
“We understand that losing your polling location might be difficult for you and we will also provide absentee balloting to any voter who wishes to cast their ballot in this manner,” the press release said.
Early absentee voting sites will be available at the Lander Courthouse 45-days prior to the election, and also in Riverton with dates and times to be determined later.
A postcard about these important changes is going out today to all registered households (meaning at least one person in the home is registered to vote) to tell you about the eight (8) Vote Centers and how you can request an absentee ballot. Please lookout for this important document!! If you do NOT receive a postcard and you feel confident that you are a registered voter, your address may not be updated and you should contact our office to check the status of your voter registration.
For more information about any of these items, please contact the Fremont County Clerk by calling (307) 332-1122 or the Election Office at (307) 332-1088 or 1089.
