Secretary Chuck Gray suggested a number of voting rules changes, and this past week LSO drafts of the corresponding bills were discussed.

Secretary Gray argues that:

  • WY is one of a few states without a residency rule.
  • The new WY resident is able to vote in the federal election.
  • It’s best to pre-empt problems that might happen in WY.

Turns out that THIRTY states don’t have durational residency. 

Secretary Gray said — with a straight face —  that new WY residents retain their voting rights because each is free to return to their old state to vote.  



“Durational residency” returns for discussion in October
