Wyoming Democrats Cancel In-Person Portion of Caucus Because of COVID-19
The Wyoming Democratic Party has canceled all county conventions and the in-person portion of its upcoming caucus.
The party has taken the precautions over increasing concerns around the coronavirus outbreak.
The events to assign Wyoming’s 13 pledged delegates, scheduled for April 4, will now be handled exclusively through the mail.
Voters can still drop their ballots off in person at one of the party’s dozens of collection spots around the state.
Voters can drop off their ballots on March 28 and April 4, and have them postmarked by March 20.
The change is not anticipated to interfere with any of the traditional functions of the caucus itself.
However, county delegates to the state convention, normally selected in person, could be elected by other means, pending approval by the Democratic National Committee.
As of now, the June 6 state convention in Powell is on schedule.
