The Electoral system of Wyoming

The term electoral system can refer to the method by which elections are conducted (e.g., whether officials are elected in single-winner versus multi-winner systems) or the method by which votes are tallied to determine the outcome of an election (e.g., plurality systems, majority systems, ranked-choice voting systems, etc.). In the United States, most federal and state-level officials are elected via plurality vote in single-winner contests, although some jurisdictions (e.g., cities, school boards, etc.) employ alternative electoral systems.

HIGHLIGHTS

·  In Wyoming, State representatives and senators are elected via plurality vote in single-winner contests.

·  Elected state executive officials, including the governor and secretary of state, are elected in single-winner contests via plurality vote. The same is true for United States Senators and United States Representatives.
