The vote on the Constitutional Amendments and the Council questions these elections

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) – With ten more days until the general election, 8,000 absentee and early voting ballots have already been cast, according to the Laramie County Clerk.

Voters will also vote on two amendments and two regional questions in this election.

“Now it is up to the voters to accept the ability of local governments to invest these funds in the hope of achieving greater returns. So we can better implement and spend money in our community without raising tax revenue,” said Laramie County Commissioner Gunnar Malm.

Amendment “A” would allow counties and cities, like the state, to invest in equity and use the funds for projects and improvements.

Amendment “B” would allow Wyoming Supreme Court and District Court judges to delay the mandatory retirement age from 70 to 75, allowing later career judges to stay in their roles longer.

Both of these require a 50 percent majority vote to pass, and a no vote is a no.

Laramie County Ballot measures will also ask voters to consider renewing the lodging tax paid by tourists and hotel guests.

And the general purpose sales and use tax helps fund road work and projects.

The county secretary also wants to make sure that everyone signs their affidavit on the ballot paper.

“If that’s not signed, we can’t count on that, so pay attention to the details, get it signed and make sure we get it back on time.”

Early voting ends on November 7th, and the polling place at the Laramie County Government County Complex will be closed on Election Day, November 8th.
