Several candidates who will appear on primary election ballots in Wyoming have endorsed replacing elected officials with appointed bureaucrats. Some of these candidates are even running for election to offices that they do not believe should be held by citizens who have been elected through the democratic process. Other candidates have said that they believe other offices that conflict with the office they are seeking should be appointed, not elected. Examples of these offices that some candidates want to remove from the democratic process range from the statewide Superintendent of Public Instruction to local County Coroners. In Cheyenne, the debate over whether there are too many people living in Cheyenne to entrust the government to the hands of an elected politician rather than appointing a professionally trained bureaucrat to rule the city.
