I think it's fair to say that Wyoming state govt's (in)ability to retain staff is a crisis. @maggiemlln for @wyofile has the details 🔎

Turnover in Wyoming's state government has accelerated — roughly one out of every four executive-branch employees left during the recently completed fiscal year. That's according to a new workforce report released in September.

I need to point out that Buchanan was expected to "fulfill his forthcoming duties" before taking the bench, which is different from finishing his term. The governor's office clarified that today.

Buchanan was expected to finish out his term as secretary of state and then take the bench as a judge but the district court says he starts on Sept. 19. @maggiemlln has the details

For all the fuss over election integrity this campaign season, the State Canvassing Board certified the results for Wyo's primary election on Wednesday without any ado. A new post-election audit, meanwhile, indicated zero issues across all 23 counties.

Mexico's president has declared the 2014 disappearance of 43 students from Ayotzinapa a "crime of the state" and had the former attorney general arrested. But it's not just Mexico's problem. As I learned from @reveal , the US needs to look at its role too.

Wyo voters! Did you vote in the primary as a Republican only on the Cheney/Hageman race but not on other races down the ballot? If so @WyoFile would like to talk to you. DM me or email Tennessee @wyofile .com

182,142 ballots cast. previous turnout record for a Wyoming primary was 146,612 in 1986 — also a midterm election. Wyo history buffs: what was going on in '86 that got the voters to the polls?
