CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) - Teton County voters rejected a proposed 1 percent general revenue sales tax increase, while voters in Park, Campbell and Sheridan counties renewed lodging taxes in Tuesday’s election.

In addition, Park County voters approved a 1 percent special use tax that will raise nearly $14 million for infrastructure projects.
