About the Inauguration of Wyoming’s Statewide Elected Officials
Every four years the citizens of the great state of Wyoming, through their votes, elect five people to lead the state for the next four years. We congratulate all who participated in the democratic process, and celebrate the transition from candidate to elected official beginning with a day of public events at Wyoming’s State Capitol and throughout the city of Cheyenne.
Wyoming State Statute sets the date that those elected in November assume office, and prior to the entering of office they must take and subscribe to the oath of office prescribed by the Wyoming Constitution.
Traditionally the swearing-in ceremony has been performed in a formal setting befitting the peaceful transition of power. This coming year will be no different, taking place on January 2, 2023.
Please join as the three branches of government come together in this time-honored celebration of democracy.
