Just a heads up. Several people have been under the impression that they are to vote for two At Large councilors. And while the ballot says “Vote for One” for Chief and Deputy Chief, it doesn’t say that above the At Large Council candidates.
DO NOT VOTE FOR TWO!! YOUR BALLOT WILL BE CAST OUT IF YOU VOTE FOR TWO COUNCILORS!!
Although there are two At Large councilors, they serve staggered terms. Mary Baker Shaw is your councilor and she is not up for re-election until 2021. So there is only one At Large Tribal Council seat that will open up for 2019.The ballot also says it must be received by 7 pm on Election Day, but it doesn’t say what that date is. It must be received by 7 pm on JUNE 1, 2019.These are important omissions that I’m finding are leading to some confusion, so please spread the word to others. Wado!
