Cheyenne voters will decide in one week whether or not to change the city's government structure.

A special referendum election to decide whether to switch to a proposed city administrator form of government or stick with the current strong mayor form will be held on November 10.

Marguerite Herman with the Cheyenne League of Women Voters says there are compelling arguments on both sides, so it will be interesting to see how the election shakes out.

"A lot of people are very protective of that strong mayor position, but I know a lot of people who say nope, a lot of those duties should be in the hands of a non-politician, a professional who's just doing a job and is not a politician," said Herman. "So, you know, I guess you can come down on either side."

Herman says regardless of the outcome, the main thing is that people get out and vote.

"In the past, people voted at precincts in their voting locations based on where they live," said Herman. "There are going to be nine voting centers that are opened all around town."

If backed by voters, the city administrator would start in January 2017.
