SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. —On Feb. 13, 2023, special election ballots for the Special Advisory Election for Unit 1 Director were mailed out to tribal members. As provided in the Notice of Election published on Jan. 6, 2023, the Election Committee intended for the ballots to be mailed out on Feb. 24, 2023. However, due to an unintentional clerical error, the ballots were mailed out earlier than planned.

The Election Committee, upon considering all options and upon recommendation of legal counsel, has decided to proceed with the Special Advisory Election using the ballots that were sent early. Replacement ballots will NOT be sent to voters. If you wish to vote in the Special Advisory Election for Unit 1 Director, please utilize the ballot you receive in the mail.

All other voting procedures remain in place as stated in the Election Notice. In order to be counted for the Special Advisory Election, ballots must be received by the Election Committee by 5 p.m. at the United States Post Office-Sault Ste. Marie location on March 20, 2023.
