As of Monday
noon – only hours before the Nov. 3
General Election polling precincts open on
Tuesday – voters poured into the Sublette
County Clerk’s Office to cast their ballots
Altogether, 46 percent of the county’s
4,178 registered voters – including more
than 900 newly registered voters – cast
889 early ballots and submitted 1,265
absentee ballots that election judges will
open and count when polls officially open
today for Election Day.
“We’ve had over 40 voters already this
morning,” said Deputy Clerk Andrea Jean.
“We’ve been crazy all morning. People are
being very good at waiting.”
The newly registered voters are a wide
mixture of new residents, people who have
never voted and people who didn’t vote in
the 2016 presidential election, she said.
In that 2016 election where Donald
Trump faced off against Hillary Clinton,
so many people turned out to register at the
polls that Sublette County’s voter turnout
rose to 105 percent.
Jean expects that to happen for this 2020
election with President Trump against former
Vice President Joe Biden as well.
“If we have more than 4,718 votes it
will put us over 100 percent again,” she
