Tribal Election Set For Nov. 19

A special Fort Peck tribal election is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 19. Registration closes at 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 31.

The election was scheduled for Oct. 1, but is being held later due to tribal constitutional requirements. No specific date has been announced.

The need for a special election was created when long-time tribal board member Grant Stafne resigned in a letter dated Aug. 29.

Because Dana “Sam” Buckles and Kaci Wallette tied for the 12th seat with 449 votes in last year’s tribal executive board election, a new election involving the two candidates is needed to determine Stafne’s replacement.
