Election Security

The League of Women Voters of Wyoming believes that voting is a fundamental right that must be supported and protected. We oppose legislation limiting those rights that discourage voting, add expense, and create unnecessary barriers. Voter fraud is NOT occurring in Wyoming.

Wyoming election are secure:

There is no evidence of voter impersonation.

There is no evidence that current absentee voting laws, use of ballot drop boxes or early voting have resulted in any significant abuse.

Restriction on voter choice of party affiliation eliminate options and discourage voting.
