State elections

Election of state leadership will take place in April.

Wyoming Democratic Party Chairwoman Ana Cuprill of Pinedale and Vice-chair Bruce Palmer of Lander have launched their re-election campaign to continue to lead the party for another two-year term.

Cuprill and Palmer have both served as county chairs before taking the helm of the state Party in 2014.

They will be joined on the ticket by Jane Arnett of Park County and Barb Smith of Platte County who are running for treasurer and secretary, respectively.

Arnett brings formal training as well as on-hand experience to the candidacy. She is a former U.S. Air Force officer who, during one overseas assignment, was responsible for five bases with a budget in excess of $44 million. From Cody, she has most recently served as the Park County Democratic Party Treasurer since 2015.

Smith of Wheatland has served as the Platte County Democratic Party state committee woman since 2015. She is looking forward to working on communications for the party and fundraising to help get Democrats elected.

"We are proud to be running with these hard working and extremely qualified women," said Cuprill and Palmer. "If elected we all look forward to representing and working with Wyoming Democrats across the state to win in 2018 and 2020."


Over the next few months the Fremont County Democratic Party and the Wyoming Democratic Party will be electing leaders to forge the way to 2018 elections.

Fremont County Republicans plan their organizational elections later in the spring.
