JH Votes Yes

A group of community members has recently formed a PAC, ‘Jackson Hole Votes YES!’ to advocate for keeping the community in Jackson Hole -- building the town and county we as locals want to live, work and raise our families in – by supporting the full slate of projects proposed on the 2019 SPET ballot.

Each item on the SPET ballot directly supports important items the Jackson community has repeatedly said they value – safety, health, environmental sustainability, housing and wildlife. 

 

PAC Chairs include Joni Upsher, Lauren Dickey and Mike Welch, who see this as an opportunity to educate voters and encourage them to support community values in November.

How To Vote

Voter Registration Information 

National Voter Registration Act Exemption

The State of Wyoming is exempt from the National Voter Registration Act commonly known as "motor voter." There is no voter registration available at the Drivers License Division of the Department of Transportation or at any other state agency.

Where to Register

The easiest way to register to vote is to stop by the Teton County office at 200 S Willow St, Jackson, WY 83001. Voter registration offices are located in the basement of the building. 

Voter Qualifications

In order to register to vote, you must meet the following qualifications:  

  • Must be 18 years of age on Election Day

  • Must be a citizen of the United States

  • Must be a bona fide resident of Teton County and the precinct in which you register

  • Present a valid Wyoming Driver's License (If you do not have your current valid driver's license with you, you must provide the number along with additional acceptable identification as defined in Rules Ch 2: Identification for Election Purposes)

    • If you have not been issued a Wyoming Driver's License or yours is expired, you must provide:

      • A statement to that effect;

      • The last four digits of your social security number; and

      • Additional acceptable identification as defined in rules

  • If you have neither a valid Wyoming Driver's License nor a social security number, please indicate this by checking the appropriate box on the Voter Registration Application form and contact you County Clerk

  • Must withdraw voter registration from any other jurisdiction, if applicable

  • Must not be a convicted felon, or if convicted, has had civil or voting rights restored 

  • Must not be adjudicated mentally incompetent

Persons who meet the above qualifications may also register to vote at the polls on Primary and General Election Days.

Inability to Register In-Person

If you are unable to register in person, you may print the voter registration form (PDF) and return it to The Teton County Administrators. Please make sure to follow all instructions very carefully to insure that your registration can be processed. If you have any questions regarding this form, please call at 307-733-4430.

Military and Overseas Citizens

FPCA is a form you can use to register to vote and request absentee ballots for the year. 

If you requested your absentee ballot and haven't received it at least 30 days before the election, you can use the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB). The FWAB is an emergency backup ballot.

For more information regarding the use of either form please visit https://www.fvap.gov/ or call at 307-733-4430.

Registering at the Polls

It is advised that you register prior to that date so that your name will appear on the poll list on election day. If you are unable to register early, you may register at the polls on election day, however registering on election day can cause delays and lines at the polls. If you are unable to get to a polling site on Election Day, you may still come to the Absentee Polling site within the 14 day registration cut off period to register, but you must be prepared to vote by absentee at the same time. 

Address Changes

If your residence address or mailing address has changed since the last time you voted, please call or come into the Election’s Office and change your address. All changes made after voter registration closes must be made in person, either at the county clerk's office or at the polls on election day.

Party Changes

Should you need to change your party affiliation, you must make the change in person at the Teton County Administrators office or on election day at your polling site. Again, all changes made after voter registration closes must be made in person, either at the county clerk's office or at the polls on election day.

Absentee Voting 

To insure that all registered voters have the opportunity to cast their ballot, Wyoming allows voters to vote by absentee - for any reason. A qualified elector may apply for an absentee ballot either in person, in writing, by e-mail, or by telephone at anytime during the calendar year in which the election is held, but not on the day of the election.

Voting at the Absentee Polling Place

Additionally, Teton County has an absentee polling place that is located in the basement of the Teton County Administration Building. All qualified electors wishing to vote in person by absentee may vote at the absentee polling site.

The absentee polling site is open Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for 40 days prior to the 2019 Special SPET Election. The absentee polling site will be open September 26, 2019 to November 4, 2019. Please keep in mind that the absentee polling site is not open on Election Day. You must vote at a designated vote center on Election Day.

Other Ways to Absentee Vote

If you are unable to vote in person at the absentee polling site, you can request that an absentee ballot be mailed to you. Beginning in January of each election cycle, you may request an absentee ballot by calling  at 307-733-4430, or complete the ABSENTEE BALLOT REQUEST FORM (PDF) and email to elections@tetoncountywy.gov. Calling or emailing is the best way to ensure there is enough time to mail your ballot.

You can also mail or drop off the form in person to the County Clerk's Office in the basement of the County Administration Building at 200 S Willow St, Jackson, WY 83001 or mail it to:

USPS:
Teton County Clerk
P.O. Box 1727
Jackson, WY, 83001

UPS or FEDEX:
Teton County Clerk
200 S Willow St
Jackson, WY 83001

If you would like someone to pick up an absentee ballot for you, please make sure that you complete the section on the absentee ballot request form which designates who will pick up your ballot, or make sure to give the person picking up your ballot a hand written note that gives them permission to pick up the ballot on your behalf.

Deadline of Receiving Ballots

All absentee ballots must be received in the Clerk`s Office by 7 p.m. on the day of the Election to be counted.
