CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming’s chief election official is stepping down after a nearly 20-year career with the secretary of state’s office.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1PqqULM) that Peggy Nighswonger confirmed her resignation on Monday as the state’s elections director, citing “differences in philosophy” with Secretary of State Ed Murray, who was elected last year.

Murray wasn’t immediately available Monday for comment.

Nighswonger, who oversaw elections, campaign finance disclosures and lobbying laws, says she’s not sure whether she will continue working somewhere else or retire.
