Special Election Draws Good Voter Turnout [VIDEO]
A large number of Cheyenne voters cast their ballot in Tuesday's special election.
Laramie County Clerk Debbye Lathrop says 36% of registered voters went to the polls, a higher number than she anticipated.
"I thought if we hit 30% we'd be doing good," said Lathrop. "We really don't have anything historical for something like this, because it was just a city-wide election not a county-wide election, so there really wasn't anything to compare to."
Voters shot down a charter ordinance that would have established the position of city administrator by a margin of nearly 2-1.
A canvassing board will officially finalize the results on Friday.
