This Voter Guide was prepared by the Cheyenne LWV. It contains statements of Cheyenne and Laramie County candidates running for office in the primary election on Tuesday, August 16, 2016. We have invited primary candidates for the Wyoming Senate, Wyoming House of Representatives, County Commission, Cheyenne mayor and council. (See the Wyoming League section of www.wyominglwv.org for information about candidates for our lone representative in Congress.)
Candidates were emailed the questions by June 20 or sent the questions through the US Postal Service. All were asked to submit electronic replies only. The replies are printed below. We requested candidates limit their responses for question 1 to 250 words and for question 2 to 650 words. We did not edit any responses. If responses exceeded the word limit, we ended the text with an ellipsis (…).
This Cheyenne LWV page of www.wyominglwv.org will contain various information about the candidates, candidate events, registering and voting. We will present forums in the City Council Chambers on July 12, 13 and 14 for candidates for mayor and council. (Wyoming Tribune-Eagle is co-sponsor.) Check this page for information about when Charter Communications plans to broadcast the forums on cable channel 192. Charter also will post the forums online, and we will provide a link.
The Cheyenne League will prepare a Voter Guide for those candidates who stand for office in the general election on November 8. It will be posted on this same site. The League will also sponsor forums for the general election candidates.
In addition, the Wyoming League will post online a “pro-con” flyer on the one proposed constitutional amendment on the ballot this fall.
Early voting begin July 1 in Cheyenne in the atrium of the Laramie Count Court House. Absentee ballots are available starting July 1 through the Laramie County Clerk’s office. The polls open at 7 a.m. on Tuesday, August 19. Unregistered voters can register at their polling place and vote the same day, provided they have a valid government-issued ID card. Find a complete list of candidates and information about registering and voting on the Laramie County Clerk’s Website http://www.laramiecountyclerk.com/elections.aspx.
