Party Crossover Reform Dies in Wyoming Senate
Written by jordanmckamey on February 22, 2019
The Wyoming Senate has squashed a bill to reform crossover voting, which allows voters to change party affiliation on primary or general election day.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports Thursday night’s vote all but ends the Republican Party’s primary policy goal of this legislative session.
A number of amendments introduced in the Senate earlier this week would have required voters to provide a valid photo ID by a cutoff date of May 1 to switch parties. If the bill had passed, Wyoming would have had one of the most restrictive closed primaries in the nation.
