CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Laramie County is on day 16 of early and absentee voting. It’s also three weeks from the general election.

However, Laramie County Clerk Debra Lee says that voting continues to be robust, with those ballots splitting between absentee and in-person voting.

There are about 4,000 votes already in.

The absentee drop boxes remain in place thanks partly to support from county clerks across the state and the public.

According to the Laramie County Clerk, these drop boxes are helpful for folk with irregular work hours and elderly with delicate health who don’t want to be exposed to large groups.

All votes must be entered by 7 p.m. by election day to be counted.

Lee said voter security remains at the top of everyone’s list of priorities, adding that if voters are concerned about that security, the county clerk is the place to go.

“Get the right information, I mean they can certainly contact us, and they can contact the secretary of state office but you know check your facts and check with the source,” says Debra Lee, Laramie County Clerk.

Lee says the county clerks will continue to follow security protocols, chain of custody, ballot reconciliation, and the many checks and balances written in statute and the voting rules.
