“We are on the final stretch of the 2018 Election Cycle and barely 60 days away from the General Election on November 6th. I hope that every voter spends some time in the coming weeks to familiarize themselves with the candidates on their ballot. We are blessed in Wyoming to have accessible elected officials and candidates eager to hear from voters. No one should hesitate to call or email candidates to hear from them directly. Our state has a future, but which future depends on the voters,” said Secretary of State Edward Buchanan.
