2016 Election

Wyoming does not hold a Presidential primary, so voters will not see names of Presidential candidates on their August 16, 2016, Primary Election ballot. Candidates for U.S. President, nominated by their national party conventions, and independent candidates will only appear on the Wyoming General Election ballot.

Because Wyoming is a caucus/convention state, the recognized political parties in the state (Constitution, Democratic, Libertarian, and Republican) certify their nominees for President to our office following their national conventions. For specific information on the state party delegate and candidate preference process, please visit the respective party website for information and party bylaws.

Independent candidates must apply through the petition process. If you would like further information in regards to this process, please contact our office at (307) 777-5860 or email: Elections@wyo.gov.
