In late April, a federal judge ruled that Fremont County has to stop using its at-large system for electing county commissioners, because it dilutes the Native American vote

Wyoming – Molly Messick speaks with Fremont County Attorney Brian Varn who says the county is considering a few options to address the ruling that the way county commissioners are elected must be changed to better accommodate Native American voters.

Molly Messick speaks with Gary Collins. He's a plaintiff in the voting rights case, a tribal liaison and a member of the Northern Arapaho tribe. He says the plaintiffs' aim is to secure representation for tribal members - but this case is linked with discrimination in Fremont County, and that's ongoing.
