Voter Turn Out Lowest In 30 Years
About a quarter of those eligible to vote in Wyoming participated in the primary elections on Tuesday.
That means 25 percent of the population made decisions in the voting booth that will impact everyone in the state.
“This level of voter participation is one of the lowest Wyoming has had in the last thirty years.”
State Election Director, Peggy Nighswonger notes that only about half of eligible voters are registered. Unofficial figures show that roughly 108,000 people voted out of about 218,000 registered voters, or 49.5 percent.
Alternatively, she says turnout in Wyoming for the general election, historically is around 98 percent.
