Approximately 45% of the 13,173 registered voters in Teton County participated in Tuesday’s election. Teton County Clerk, Sherry Daigle, commented on Tuesdays results, stating, “It is encouraging to see thousands of Teton County residents engage and participate in this process – it reflects the pride and care that everyone has in our community.” She went on to commend the workers and volunteers involved in the election process, noting, “It takes a great staff and volunteers to have a smooth and successful election day, and I want to thank everyone who was involved.”

Official results are expected to be certified on Thursday, May 4, 2017. Unofficial results can be viewed on the Teton County website.

The Teton County Board of Commissioners plans to keep residents updated on the progress of all the approved projects over the coming months and years with regular reports back to the community. Interested citizens are encouraged to stay connected to the most current updates and opportunities for engagement via www.tetonwyo.org and the Teton County Facebook page (@TetonCountyWyo). 

The funding source for the SPET is a 1% sales tax paid by visitors and residents on most goods and services purchased within Teton County. The SPET raises approximately $10 to $12 million annually and has helped to fund nearly $220 million worth of community enhancements.
