Near-record number of parties this year

Wyoming will have six political parties on the ballot this year, which is more than in any election since the 1930s.

State Election Director Peggy Nighswonger says minor parties often try to get on the ballot in presidential election years, but they often fail to get the required number of signatures from registered voters. She says this year, they’re more organized.
