As of the date of this article, there is only one open seat on the Sublette County Commission Board. However, this has been challenged in a lawsuit filed on May 23rd. Candidates Paul Rock and Ernie Kawa sued the County and asked the Court to declare the May 8, 2012 Special Election illegal in order to allow the August 11, 2011 Special Election results to go into effect, which increased the commission from 3 to 5 members. In the May 8, 2012 Special Election, voters overturned increasing the board membership. No court date has been scheduled on this lawsuit.
