  • WPR’s series preps Wyomingites for the August 20 primary election. This week, we’re looking at legislative races in the northwest quadrant of the state. Our statehouse reporters break down races to watch and how campaign finances are flowing.
  • This new series preps Wyomingites for the August 20 primary election. Our statehouse reporters break down races to watch, how to vote and how campaign finances are flowing.
  • Wyoming voters will have to navigate some new rules this year. The absentee voting period has shrunk. And crossover voting has been outlawed. That means that if you want to vote in a party primary this year, you’ll have to register as a Republican or Democrat this month before candidate filing begins. To be clear, Wyoming is still a same-day voter registration state, and you can still register on Election Day if you are not already registered. Wyoming Public Radio’s Jeff Victor sat down with Albany County Clerk Kayla White to learn what’s different about this year’s election cycle.
  • Research has shown elections to be increasingly focused on the presidential race, leaving down-ballot candidates to adopt standard party policy. That leaves state lawmakers in a unique position to listen and respond directly to young voters.
  • Wyoming Public Radio wants to hear from you, our listeners, about the upcoming election. We’ve partnered with the team at America Amplified to ensure that you have the information you need to participate in the general election in November. As part of that partnership, we will be launching a tool on our website to answer your questions. Wyoming Public Radio’s Ivy Engel spoke with Alisa Barba, America Amplified’s managing director, about the project and the new tool.
