Are there any disadvantages to Absentee/Early Voting?
There are two main issues to educate yourself on about the way Wyoming's Absentee voting works:

  1. If you vote for too many people (for example you accidentally marked two people when you should have marked one) [this is called an overvote] and you submit your ballot at your precinct on election day then the machine would indicate this and give you an opportunity to request another ballot. If you Absentee vote you do not get the same opportunity.

  2. If you mail your ballot there is no guarantee that the postal service will return the ballot on time. You can always return your ballot in person, if that is an option for your situation
