Teton County Elections Office Warns of Door to Door Voter Registration Scam

JACKSON – September 18, 2014 –The Teton County Elections office received information suggesting that a person or persons are going door to door soliciting personal information under the guise of a voter registration drive.

Teton County does not conduct voter registration drives of any kind as Wyoming law requires residents to appear in person at an election office within their county. Teton County Clerk, Sherry Daigle commented “My staff doesn’t go door to door to register people to vote. In order to register to vote you must come to the Teton County the elections office or you may register to vote at your polling site on Election day.”

The Elections Office is located in the office of the County Clerk located at 200 South Willow Street, lower level. Residents should also be aware that the State of Wyoming is exempt from the National Voter Registration Act commonly known as “motor voter.” There is no voter registration available at the Drivers License Division of the Department of Transportation or at any other state agency.
