Special Fort Peck Tribal Election Set For Saturday
A special Fort Peck tribal election will take place Saturday, Nov. 19. The need for a special election was created when longtime tribal board member Grant Stafne resigned in a letter dated Aug. 29.
Because Dana “Sam” Buckles and Kaci Wallette tied for 13th place with 449 votes each in last year’s election, a new election involving the two candidates is needed to determine Stafne’s replacement.
Voting polls will open at 8 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Saturday. Voting locations are the Fort Kipp Jim Black Dog Hall, Brockton Cultural Center, Poplar Cultural Center, Wolf Point Community Hall, Oswego Community Hall and Frazer Annex Building.
Homebound and/or handicapped individuals may request an absentee ballot be delivered to their place of residence by calling Misty at 406-768-2397, Megan at 406-768--2302, Parker Gray Hawk at 406-7688068 or leave a message with Yvette Todd at 406-768-2300.
Stafne received the second most votes, 882, of any tribal executive board member in the 2021 election.
