CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming officials have formed a task force to begin the replacement of aging election equipment.

KTWO-AM radio in Casper reports Teton County Clerk Sherry Daigle says the voting equipment used in Wyoming’s 23 counties is nearing the end of its lifespan, and it is of “paramount importance that our voting systems be unfailingly reliable.”

The task force - Plan for Aging Voting Equipment, or PAVE - primarily will look at the type of election equipment needed and how to pay for it.

Natrona County Clerk Renea Vitto says most of the equipment that would be replaced is what voters see at the polling places.

The task force met in October and will meet as needed during 2018.
