Vote early 27.Nov.2004 21:19

and often...

Hey they did good this year. Their previous record was set in the 2000 general election when only 101pct of registered voters actually voted.

They just want to make sure all the votes are counted. And counted. And counted...

It begs the question. Perhap this included newly registered voterd from the voting age population of 376,359 but  http://soswy.state.wy.us/election/2004/gen-reg.htm seems to indicat otherwise. I am confounded. email:  elections@state.wy.us < elections@state.wy.us> for clairification

Same-Day Registration 27.Nov.2004 23:05

Scotty B.

Does Wyoming have same-day registration, and would that explain the apparent irregularity? I know that in Idaho there's high voter turnout combined with about 10% registering on voting day, so if the situation in Wyoming is similar it could be the cause.

Black Sheep

Appears that the case is as was suggested above, voters registering at the polls. See the below Casper Star Tribune article.
