No Voter Datbase Yet

Laramie, Wy – Wyoming has terminated its relationship with the company that was building its voter registration database. The company returned all of the money it received from Wyoming. But, this leaves Wyoming to finish the job of getting a statewide database in place before the elections this year. Secretary of State, Joe Meyer, says this company also had problems in other states too. He thinks maybe they bit off more than they could chew given each state needs an individualized system.
By law Wyoming must have a statewide database in place but, Meyer says the state won't be penalized and should have a database operating by mid July.
