Felony Information

Under Wyoming law, if you have been convicted of a felony, you may apply to the Wyoming Board of Parole to have your right to vote restored if you meet these qualifications:

  • Only one felony conviction (or more than one felony arising out of the same occurrence or course of events)
  • A non-violent crime
  • You completed your sentence more than five years ago
  • If you have been convicted of a felony, and you don't meet those qualifications, but have completed your sentence or a probationary period, you may apply to the governor for a pardon or restoration of your rights. For more information on voting rights, visit the Wyoming Board of Parole's website.

Information for Students

  • You must be a resident of the state in which you register and vote. If you're a student from Wyoming who attends school in another state, you may need to determine whether you're a Wyoming resident or a resident of the state where you attend school. The important thing to keep in mind is that you may only cast your vote in one state.
  • Here's what Wyoming says about residency: Wyoming law defines residence as the fixed place where you currently live, and to which, whenever you're away, you intend to return. You do not have residence in a place where you have come for temporary purposes only and without the intention of making it your home.
  • If you determine you're a Wyoming resident, but will not be present in this state or will be away from your home district on Election Day, be sure to check the absentee ballot application requirements and deadlines. In addition, Wyoming residents who attend school in-state, but in a different election district, may be eligible to register and vote in the election district where they live while attending school.
  • To determine whether you're a resident of a different state where you attend school, be sure to check that state's residency requirements.
