Sublette County held its second special election to determine how many county commissioners should preside over county business, three or five? Last August, voters elected to go from 3 to 5 commissioners, with 28% of registered voters going to the polls.

The 2012 election had a 45.88% voter turn-out, casting votes which ultimately decided to overturn the results of the previous special election, with the majority voting to decrease the board of county commissioners from 5 back to 3 members.
