CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming general election ballot will have a total of 146 state-level candidates.
The Secretary of State’s Office certified seven congressional candidates, 12 candidates seeking statewide office, 109 candidates for state Legislature and 18 state court judges up for retention.
The candidates include 78 Republicans, 38 Democrats, five Libertarians, five independent candidates and two Constitution Party members.
Five independent candidates for state Legislature obtained the necessary number of valid signatures from voters in their districts to be placed on the ballot.
