“A bill to transition Wyoming to a runoff election system received initial approval from a legislative committee Thursday,” the Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports.
“The bill… would require a runoff election after a primary election if no single candidate captured the majority of votes. A candidate would need to receive over 50% of the votes to be considered the winner of a primary election.”
Key takeaway: “One amendment adopted by committee members would delay the formal switch to runoff elections by a year, to Jan. 1, 2023. That means it wouldn’t happen before the next round of primary elections, including a contested race between Rep. Liz Cheney (R) and at least two state lawmakers, Sen. Anthony Bouchard (R) and Rep. Chuck Gray (R).”
