Laramie votes to change how city councilors are elected
Voters in Laramie have backed changing the way city councilors there are elected.
Currently, voters pick city councilors to represent seven wards and two at-large members. On Tuesday, voters were asked whether to stick with that system or change the number of wards or change the number of at-large members.
The city clerk's office said Wednesday that unofficial results show that the option to create three wards with three council members each got the most votes.
The results won't be official until election officials review the results on Thursday.
The League of Women Voters proposed the changes to try to make races more competitive.
