Voters can cast their ballots at any of five polling places on Election Day. These vote centers (see above map) will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.:
• Teton County Library
• Teton County/Jackson Rec Center
• Old Wilson Schoolhouse
• Teton County Weed and Pest
• Alta Branch Library
Teton County Clerk Sherry Daigle decided to close polling places at elementary schools this year, due to school safety concerns.
Voters can no longer cast a ballot at Alta and Moran elementary schools.
Instead, Alta voters can cast their ballot at the Teton County Library’s Alta branch. Moran voters will have to go to polling stations elsewhere in the county.
Voters can register to vote on Election Day. If you haven’t registered in advance, be sure to bring a form of identification. A Wyoming driver’s license will do the trick, but if you don’t have one you can use another official photo ID and the last four numbers of your social security number, Daigle said.
Early and absentee voting is open now through Nov. 5. Anyone can vote early, but it’s especially recommended for those who may be out of town or otherwise unable to vote on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 6.
Early voting is available at the Teton County clerk’s office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
If you want to vote early or absentee and you haven’t yet registered, you can still register before Election Day, but you must cast your ballot the same day you register.
To register and vote in Teton County, people must be 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen and a bona fide resident of Teton County. They must withdraw voter registration from other jurisdictions and cannot be a convicted felon or have been adjudicated mentally incompetent.
