CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming lawmakers have defeated two bills that would have impacted voting regulations.

The Casper Star-Tribune reported Monday that state legislators voted against crossover voting in primary elections and a requirement to produce photo identification at the polls.

The bills were defeated at a meeting of the Joint Committee on Corporations, Elections and Political Subdivisions in Jackson Monday.

Crossover voting refers to temporarily switching parties to affect the outcome of an election.

During the winter legislative session, the crossover voting bill was introduced and defeated numerous times and the photo identification requirement failed in a 30-29 vote on the House floor.



Rep. Scott Clem and Rep. Roy Edwards, both Gillette Republicans, were the only committee members to vote in favor of both pieces of legislation.
