Voter turnout for this year’s primary election was down in Wyoming when compared to the 2014 election. Statewide, just over 116,000 votes were cast compared to over 120,000 in 2014. However, this was the best turnout for a primary in a presidential election year the state has seen since 2004. This was the first election Wyoming allowed centralized polling places where voters from different precincts could all cast ballots. This change was made due to the closure of many neighborhood polling places.
