1) Register to vote
With less than a month before the General Election, the best way to register to vote is in-person at the County Clerk’s office any business day, 8am – 5pm, between now and November 2, 2020.
If you are not sure if you are registered in Teton County, call the County Clerk at 307.733.4430 to check your registration status.
You may still register by mail until OCTOBER 19, 2020. Please note that you will NOT have time to also request an absentee ballot by mail and will need to do so in-person at the County Clerk’s office once they process your registration application.
To register by mail you will need:
- A completed Wyoming voter registration form. All applicants except military and overseas citizens, must have this form notarized before mailing. (Most banks and UPS stores can notarize documents.)
- A copy of your acceptable identification
- A stamped envelope in which to mail your application and copy of your ID to the Teton County Clerk. (If you need a stamp, you can buy one at the post office or at any grocery store. Just ask the cashier at check-out.)
You may also register AND vote on Election Day, November 3, at any Teton County polling place. Be sure to bring ID.
2) Decide how you will vote
Voters in Teton County can choose to vote in-person absentee (aka early), absentee or in-person on Election Day.
When, where and how are you casting your ballot?
- WHEN? When will you vote? Have you requested the time off from work if you need it? Set a reminder in your phone?
- WHERE? Absentee ballots can be mailed to, dropped off at, or completed in-person in the Teton County Clerk’s office – do you know the address for the option you’re choosing? If you’re voting on Election Day, do you know where your nearest polling place is located? Have you looked up directions ahead of time?
- HOW? If you’re mailing your ballot, can you get it in the mail no later than October 19th so it arrives on time? If you’re dropping your ballot off or voting in-person, do you have a way to get where you need to go? Can you ask someone for help if you aren’t sure? Do you have a mask? Your ID?
Early & Absentee Voting
With less than a month to go before Election Day November 3, the Teton County Clerk is recommending that voters choose to vote “Absentee In-Person” (aka early).
Visit their office at 200 S Willow Street in Jackson weekdays between 8am and 5pm now through November 2nd to cast your ballot.
You may also request your absentee ballot in-person at the County Clerk’s office to take home. Be sure to fill it out and return it to the drop-box outside the County Clerk’s office by November 2, 2020!
If you already have your absentee ballot and would like to return it by mail, it must be received by 7pm on November 3, 2020. We recommend postmarking your ballots absolutely no later than October 20 to be sure it arrives on time.
In-Person Voting on Election Day
The in-person absentee polling site at the Teton County Clerk’s office is not open on Election Day. To vote in-person on Election Day, November 3, head to one of the Teton County Polling Places:
- Teton County Library
- Old Wilson Schoolhouse
- Teton County / Jackson Rec Center
- Teton County Weed & Pest
- Alta Branch Library
3) Get 3 friends to vote
Voting is our way of shaping the country we live in by choosing the people who represent us. However, voter turn-out in the 2016 general election was only 60.1% nation wide. When friends and family hear you say you are committed to vote and that voting matters to you, it makes a big impact.
We’re asking you to share the names of 3 friends that you will personally remind to vote. By sharing just their first names with us, we can easily remind you before the election to ask them to vote. We don’t need any other contact information for them.
Before the election is over, we will follow-up with you to remind you to ask your 3 friends to vote.
