Laramie Residents Vote On City Council Changes
LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Voters in Laramie are deciding whether to change the way city councilors are elected.
They’re casting ballots on the issue in a special election on Tuesday.
Currently, voters pick city councilors to represent seven wards and two at-large members. Voters are being asked whether they city should stick with that or adopt one of three changes that would require more councilors be elected to represent the city as a whole.
The Laramie Boomerang (http://tinyurl.com/cdxga94) reports that the League of Women Voters circulated a petition calling for the election. League treasurer Amy Williamson said there haven’t been enough candidates running in recent elections.
