The candidate filing period for most offices in Wyoming concluded May 27. We all need to work hard to recruit, support, and elect pro-choice candidates.
- This filing period is for “Major Party” candidates: Democrat and Republican. (Independents and Minor Party candidates — Libertarian, Constitution, etc. — can petition to get on the ballot for the general election up until August 29, 2022. See requirements here.)
- Offices up for election this year include all 62 seats in the Wyoming House, the 16 odd-numbered seats in the Wyoming Senate, and statewide offices including Governor, Secretary of State (who effectively serves as a lieutenant governor in Wyoming), and U.S. House. At the local level, filing is under way for county commissioners, city councillors (nonpartisan), and precinct committeepersons.
- Redistricting affected House and Senate Districts. Click here to use the Legislature’s new district-finding tool — you can check your current district numbers and your voting districts for the 2022 elections (for some people these will be the same, but for others there may be a change to the House and/or Senate district number).
- Candidates for legislative and statewide offices can file online at the Secretary of State’s website. (To file for local offices, contact the County Clerk.)
- The Secretary of State’s office will update the Primary Election Candidate Roster every evening. You can check to see who has filed in key districts and whether candidate recruitment still needs to be done!
- You can find the lists of current Representatives and Senators here. You can see the vote tallies for the “trigger ban” voted into Wyoming law here.
Thanks to Pro-Choice Wyoming for this information.
