With the switch to a three ward system, everyone in Laramie is now in a new ward for electing city council members. To help you determine which ward you are in, the City of Laramie has released a map of the new wards.

The current nine members of the city council have been placed into the new wards and five members are up for the 2012 election. Two seats in Ward One, two seats in Ward Two and one seat in Ward Three are to be filled. City council members serve four year terms.

For those interested in running for city council, candidate primary nomination forms and information is available from the City Clerk. Completed applications and a $25 filing fee will be accepted between May 17 and June 1, 2012. Primary Elections will take place on August 21 and the General Election is set for November 6. For additional information, please contact Sue Morris-Jones, City Clerk, 721-5220, at City Hall, 406 Ivinson Street.
