C'mon, people, you know who you're going to vote for. I know some people say they're undecided and are still mulling the various pros and cons of candidates for president and Wyoming's U.S. House and U.S. Senate seats. I've met some as I've gone door to door. "I vote for the person not the party." Great -- so vote already. How much more information do you need? This presidential campaign has been going on for decades, it seems.

Laramie County residents can follow the instructions on the county clerk's web site and go downtown and vote any week day from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. You can also request an absentee be mailed to your home address.

Here are all the details from Laramie County Clerk Debbye Lathrop's web site:

For the convenience of Laramie County voters, the Clerk's Office has an absentee polling place located in the Atrium of the Laramie County Governmental Complex, 309 W. 20th Street. This polling place is open from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for the 40-day period prior to the election (that began Sept. 25).

Voters wishing to cast an absentee ballot may visit this polling site or:
  • Call 307-633-4242 to request a ballot which will be mailed to the address provided
  • Write to P.O. Box 608, Cheyenne, WY 82003 to request a ballot
  • Bring a written request to the Elections Office at 309 W. 20th Street and pick up a ballot

All absentee ballots must be received in the Clerk's Office by 7 p.m. on the day of the election to be counted.

At last Tuesday's meeting of the Laramie County Democrats, Chair Mike Bell asked how many of us had already voted. He said he voted last week and a half-dozen others raised their hands. LarCoDems' stalwart Tom Lee keeps urging us all to get down to the polls "tomorrow!"

So that's what I'll do.

Vote early so you can work your ass off, without other commitments, on Election Day!

Why not vote on Sunday or give us the entire day off for elections? What even happened to election reform?
