CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Monday is the deadline for Wyoming voters to register ahead of next month's election.

Secretary of State Max Maxfield says voter registration closes 14 days before the general election to give county clerks time to prepare poll books.

A person must be a U.S. citizen, a Wyoming resident and at least 18 years old to register. Maxfield urged people who aren't registered to do so by contacting their county clerk's office.

Those who don't register by the Oct. 22 deadline may still register at their polling place on Election Day, Nov. 6.
