Wyoming Primary Turnout Was 46 Percent

Aug 20, 2014

The Wyoming Secretary of State’s office says that Tuesday’s primary election had an average turnout of registered voters.

State Elections Director Peggy Nighswonger says that it was comparable to previous primaries.                           

“Voter turnout for the primary elections was 46 percent of those registered to vote. Turnout is generally much higher for the general election. So if history repeats itself, we’ll likely see a lot more people at the polls on November 4th.”

In 2010, turnout was at 51 percent and it was 46 percent in 2006…the last two times the state’s top five elected officials were on the ballot.
