|WYOMING||3 Electoral Votes|
(Source: U.S. Census Bureau, Wyoming Secretary of State)
Secretary of State
Total Ballots Cast: 221,685
*The state canvass does not
include the Nader write in votes. The state canvassing board did
not canvass those votes because they did not affect the outcome of the
race. However, Nader requested that his write-in votes be counted
according to W.S. 22-16-103(b).
The Bush-Cheney ticket easily won Wyoming's 3 electoral votes, carrying all 23 counties and securing a plurality of 87,466 votes (40.06 percentage points) in Cheney's home state.
|Notes: Third parties on the ballot: The Libertarian Party qualified as minor party, having won support from more than 5% of the electors in the last general election. The Natural Law Party and the Reform Party qualified as provisional parties (June 1, 2000 deadline). Howard Phillips qualified as an independent candidate by meeting the signature requirement. (An independent candidate needed to submit signatures of 3,484 certified voters (2 percent of the voting population) by the Aug. 28, 2000 deadline). A Nader petition effort fell short.|
