1% SPECIFIC PURPOSE SALES AND USE TAX (6TH PENNY) – TUES, NOV 2
WHY VOTE ON THE 1% SPECIFIC PURPOSE SALES AND USE
(6TH PENNY) TAX ELECTION
On Nov 2, 2021, Laramie County voters have the power to make decisions about their future by voting in the 6th Penny election.
Wyoming law allows counties to impose a local option sales and use tax for a special purpose. Ballot propositions, approved by the governing bodies of Laramie County, the city of Cheyenne, and towns of Albin, Burns and Pine Bluffs, are submitted to a vote of the people to decide whether the projects should be funded through the sales and use tax.
This year, voters will consider 14 ballot propositions, grouped into the categories of public safety, roads, infrastructure and community enhancements. Voters may vote “for” or “against” each proposition. To be approved, a proposition must receive a majority of votes cast on it.
Approved propositions will be funded through a 1% percent sales and use tax, starting on April 1, 2022 and continuing until the propositions are paid for. Approval of one or more propositions means that sales and use taxes in Laramie County would be 6%.
Laramie County has had a 1% specific purpose sales and use tax since 1986.
