Default Restoration of Voting Rights in the State of Wyoming

Effective January 1, 2016, W.S. §7-13-105 allows individuals convicted, for the first time of a nonviolent felony, to automatically have their right to vote restored 5 years after completion of their sentence. Individuals who completed their sentence prior to January 1, 2016, are required to apply for restoration of the right to vote. To qualify for restoration of voting rights you must be a first time non-violent felon. If qualified, your right to vote will be restored 5 years from the date you completed your sentence (i.e. discharged from a facility or supervision).

Requirements for Submission of an Application
Those who discharged from Wyoming Department of Corrections’ custody or supervision prior to January 1, 2016, or those who have a nonviolent felony conviction outside of the state of Wyoming or a nonviolent felony conviction under federal law may apply to have their voting rights restored.
Applications may be accessed here:

Application for Restoration of Wyoming Voting Rights

The completed application should be mailed or dropped off at the following address:


Wyoming Department of Corrections
Attn: Field Services Administrator
1934 Wyott Drive, Suite 100
Cheyenne, WY 82002


A review of the application will take place within thirty (30) days of receipt. Approval or denial will be provided, in writing, to the applicant via mail. For questions regarding who is required to apply for restoration of voting rights you may call the field services representative at 307-777-6341.

Requirements for Automatic Restoration of Voting Rights
Individuals who discharge from Wyoming Department of Corrections’ custody (this includes Wyoming inmates housed out-of-state) on or after January 1, 2016, and were convicted in the state of Wyoming, are not required to apply. If you qualify (i.e. first time non-violent felony), 5 years from completion of your sentence, you will receive a signed certificate from the Wyoming Department of Corrections which indicates your voting rights have been restored. This certificate will be sent to you via mail at the individual’s last known address. Since restoration of voting rights is automatic, should you qualify after 5 years from when you complete your sentence the Secretary of State’s office and the Clerk of the District Court will be notified that your right to vote was restored.
To ensure you receive your certificate at the correct address you are responsible for notifying the WDOC of your change in address please send a letter notifying WDOC of the change in address to:


WDOC Central Office Records Manager
1934 Wyott Dr. Suite 100
Cheyenne, WY 82002


For additional information such as definitions and procedure for determining qualification please refer to WDOC Policy and Procedure #3.403, Inmate Rights.



For general questions regarding the process for automatic restoration of voting rights you may call the WDOC representative at 307-777-5983
