A seven-hour hearing on the petition filed by Le- titia Abromats of GreybuU was held last month. The hearing included the submission on more than 40 exhibits, all written documents, and testimony from four witnesses. Written closing arguments were sub- mitted later in the month and the commissioners have been reading and reviewing all the documents on their own since the hearing. Commissioner Keith Grant said Tuesday that attorneys on both sides, hearing officer Tom Jubin and Abromats' attorney, Phil Abromats of Greybull (who has filed all paperwork after the hearing whi- le Letitia Abromats attends law school out of state), have corresponded with the commissioners wanting to move the deliberations forward. After setting the meeting for Tuesday at 8 a.m., Commissioner Jerry Ewen said any action would be conducted in open session but he did not know how long deliberations would take or if they would be completed on Tuesday. The petition, filed on Aug. 2, alleges five reasons for removal -- mishandling of criminal records data; vindictive and selective prosecution of petitioner; clo- sing the office; conflict of interest with defense attor- ney Bill Simpson; and exposing County Clerk Dori Noyes to a federal contempt citation. Number of registered voters jumps BY KARLA POMEROY The number of registe- red voters grew considera- bly from 2008 to the August 2010 primary election. According to figures from the Secretary of State's Web site, http://soswy.state. wy.us, following the 2008 primary election there were 5,074 registered voters in Big Horn County. There were 622 Democrats, 13 Li- bertarians, 4,128 Republi- cans and only 311 unaffilia- ted or independent. This year, as of Oct. 1, according to the Web site, there are 5,917 registered voters, a jump from 5,549 registered voters on the day of election. As of Oct. 1, there are 652 Democrats registered in Big Horn County, up from 641 on the day of the primary election this year. The number of Libertarians registered voters dropped from 22 to 19 in the past few months, Republicans increa- sed from 4,367 to 4,831 and the number of unaffiliated registered voters dropped from 528 to 426. While the deadline to register to vote for the up- coming Nov. 2 General Elec- tion has passed, Deputy Co- unty Clerk Annette Dillon said residents are able to re- gister at the polls on the day of election. Dillon said people who voted in the 2008 General Election, but did not vote in the August primary elec- tion, are still registered to vote and will not need to re- gister. Polls are open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Basin residents will vote at the fairgrounds, as they have the past two elec- tions; Burlington and Otto voters will go to the Burling- ton Fire Hall; Hyattville vo- ters will vote at the commu- nity center, as they did in the primary election for the first time. Emblem is at the Irri- gation District Office, Man- derson is at the town hall, Greybull at the Elks Lodge, Shell at the community hall, Lovell at the National Gu- ard Armory, Cowley at the Log Gym, Byron at the town complex, Deaver at the com- munity hall and Frannie the old school building. ABSENTEE VOTING Absentee voting began in September, Dillon said. She said people do not need to be out of town on Election Day to vote absentee. "They don't need a reason, they just need to be registered." Any registered voter can call the County Clerk's offi- ce, 568-2357, and request 34,(]68 Statewide Summary of Wyoming Voter Registration 63,411 170,306 Information from Secretary of State's Office as of Oct. 1. 2010. an absentee ballot. Ballots must be returned, either in person or via mail, no later than 7 p.m. the day of elec- tion when the polls close. If a person wishes to re- gister and vote absentee, Dillon said they must do both at the county clerk's of- rice. The person can register to vote but must fill out the ballot at the clerk's office at the same time. SCHOOL BOARD VOTING Dillon addressed some confusion by residents on voting for combined school districts, such as Big Horn County School District No. 1 and4. District No. 4 has three E Democratic i Ubertadan Republican [] Unaffiliated seats open this year, a Basin seat and two at-large seats. While onlya qualified elec- tor within the Basin town limits can run for the Basin seat, all voters within the school district will be voting for all schooldistrict candi- dates. In District No. 1, there are two at-large seats open, a Cowley seat, a Burlington seat, a Deaver-Frannie seat and a two-year at-large seat. As with District 4, candida- tes filing must reside within the district in which they are filing (Cowley, Deaver-Fran- nie or Burlington); however, all residents within District No. 1 are able to vote for all five races.
