(MAYETTA) Profiles and photographs of candidates running in the upcoming Gaming Commission/Ethics Commission are now available on this website.
To access the profiles go to News and Press and scroll down to the subhead Election News to look for individual candidate listings. Profiles written and submitted by candidates were first published in the Winter edition of the Potawatomi News that was mailed to tribal households on December 17 and will be the only one used.
Ballots will be mailed out January 14 and must be mailed back in a pre-addressed return envelope that will come in a distribution package sent to registered voters. Ballots must be received at the Mayetta Post Office by 9.a.m. February 25 which is the day of the election. The election will be held at the Bingo Hall and ballots will be counted in an open meeting for the tribal membership.
The Election Board suggests that voters allow one to two weeks for mailing back their ballots. They would also like to remind members that they are now housed as part of the Member Services Department along with Per Capita and Enrollment and located on the upper level of the Government Center.
