Laramie County, WY  -  Primary Election turnout as of 4 p.m., Aug. 16, 2022

A total of 10,637 voters have cast their ballots at the seven vote centers in the county.  Number of Democratic voters:  499; Republican voters:  10,078, and Unaffiiliated:  60. 

Polls close at 7:00 p.m. 

Local races on the ballot include the Laramie County Commission, Laramie County Sheriff, several county offices, and the Cheyenne City Council.

At least one independent candidate will be on the local ballot this fall. Jeff Barnes gathered enough signatures to make the November ballot. He will face Democrat Jess Fresquez, who is unopposed in his party for Laramie County Sheriff.

The third candidate on the November election ballot for Laramie County Sheriff will be either Brian Kozak, Don Hollingshead, or Boyd Wrede, all of whom are vying to be the Republican nominee for sheriff.

Several local legislative seats are also on today's primary election ballot.

In addition to local offices, Laramie County voters will also be casting ballots on several statewide races, including U.S. Congress, Governor of Wyoming, and four other statewide offices.
