WY Stat § 22-23-307 (through 2012) What's This?

(a) The candidates equal to twice the number to be elected to each office who receive the highest number of votes are nominated to run for the office at the next general election and shall be issued a certificate of nomination by the county clerk. A write-in candidate shall not be nominated and shall not be entitled to have his name printed on the ballot for the next general election unless he received at least three (3) votes.

(b) The chief election officer shall notify a write-in candidate who has been nominated for election within forty-eight (48) hours after the canvassing board meets. Notification may be made by United States postal service, any generally accepted business document delivery method evidenced by receipt of delivery or attempted delivery at the last known address of the write-in candidate or service as provided under the Wyoming Rules of Civil Procedure. Failure of the successful write-in candidate to accept the nomination within five (5) days, as computed pursuant to W.S. 22-2-110, of proof of service or attempted delivery results in the successful write-in candidate not appearing on the general election ballot, and results in a vacancy which can be filled as provided in W.S. 22-23-308. Each notification provided under this section shall inform the write-in candidate that failure to timely respond will result in forfeiture of nomination.
