Voters at the election Nov. 2 at Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation have several ballot issues regarding election laws as well as deciding the leaders of their government.
The election committee has proposed three amendments that will be on the ballot as well as the names of the eight candidates running for the four slots open on the Chippewa Cree Tribe’s Business Committee.
The candidates who advanced from the primary are Harlan Gopher Baker, Tim Koop, Ricky Morsette, Neal Rosette Sr., Gerald Small, Russell Standing Rock, Ted E. Whitford Sr. and Jonathan Windy Boy.
The ballot issues are: a proposal to amend regulations on absentee ballots, a proposal to amend the appointment of poll watchers and an amendment to increase the fee to file an election protest from $250 to $500 for each candidate protesting and an additional cash deposit of $500 from each protesting candidate if a new election is ordered by the election board.
Eligible voters are duly enrolled members of the Tribe who are at least 18 years old on Election Day and who provide a Chippewa Cree Tribal identification card at the polling place.
