CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming could transition away from the state's caucus process that helps select the Republican and Democratic presidential nominees.

Lawmakers voted Wednesday to approve a study that will make recommendations for whether the state should abandon its current process and switch to a presidential primary election.

The Joint Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions Interim Committee will conduct the study.

Both the state's Democratic and Republican parties have different procedures for the caucus process, but neither is as easy the primary process where voters can cast their votes and leave.

Rep. Dan Zwonitzer says both parties are in support of the study.
