The Cherokee Nation Tribal Council approved polling precincts for the June 27 tribal elections, including 15 new voting sites in some counties. Counties with new polling sites include Sequoyah, Adair, Cherokee, Delaware, Mayes, Nowata, Rogers, and Tulsa Counties.
The list of polling sites was submitted by the Cherokee Nation Election Commission to the Tribal Council in the April Rules Committee, and Tribal Council approved the precincts during Monday night's May meeting.
"The Election Commission worked meticulously to select the most accessible and accommodating voting precincts for our citizens in the upcoming elections," said Cherokee Nation Tribal Council Speaker Tina Glory-Jordan. "We must ensure our tribal elections are fair and transparent, and having dozens of voting precincts in the heart of our communications offer the opportunity for the Cherokee people to exercise one of our most cherished rights."
