3 Things You Didn't Know About Wyoming Caucuses and Elections

2. The 2004 Wyoming general election turnout was 65 percent.

3. During the 2000 election, Wyoming teamed up with Colorado and Utah, and the three states held their primaries and caucuses on March 10. They did this in hopes that the western states would have more of an impact on selecting a candidate.
