Voter turnout high in Laramie County

News on voter turnout from tonight's meeting of Laramie County Democrats:

10,000 people in the county have voted early. 8,000 of those votes were cast in person at the City & County Building Atrium in downtown Cheyenne. 2,000 were mail-in ballots.

Yesterday (Oct. 27) was the highest turnout at the Atrium: 700.

These figures come from the office of the Laramie County Clerk, Debbye Lathrop.

Secretary of State Max Maxfield's office reports there were 37,530 registered voters in Laramie County as of Oct. 1. That number could be a lot higher. On Oct. 6, the final day to register for the 2008 general election, was the highest-ever day for voter registrations in the history of Wyoming. Wowzir! So, we could have 38,000 or even more registered voters in this county.

But we know that at least one-quarter of registered voters have cast ballots in the state's largest county.

Three more days to vote early.
