CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Two people have received enough write-in votes during last week's primary election to qualify for November's general election ballot for Wyoming state offices.

The Wyoming State Canvassing Board on Wednesday approved the write-in candidacies of two Democrats, Chris Lowry for state treasurer and Mike Massie for state superintendent of public instruction.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports that Lowry announced a write-in campaign for treasurer days before the Aug. 21 primary. He will oppose Republican state Sen. Curt Meier, of LaGrange, who won the GOP primary.

However, Massie says he has no intention of running for statewide office.

Massie is a former state lawmaker who lost a bid for state superintendent in 2010.

He says he was shocked that he had enough write-in votes to qualify for the Nov. 6 ballot.
