Election Announcements from the General Election Board
The RTC passed Resolution #81 designating all Bois Forte polling places as precincts at which all eligible Bois Forte voters may cast a ballot in person on Election Day.
It is important for voters to update their current address with Angela King of the Enrollment Office at the Tribal Government Center. Any address change needs to be in writing. Address change forms are available at the Enrollment Office. You can also download an address change form by clicking here.
Absentee ballot request information is confidential and is not shared with other Bois Forte divisions or departments. Therefore, an absentee ballot request with a new address does not change any address on file with accounting, enrollment, or any other Bois Forte department. If you need to submit new address for purposes other than voting, please send your updated information to the appropriate department. Mii gwech.
Voters concerned about privacy and identity theft have the option of enclosing their request for an absentee ballot in a sealed envelope rather than using the candidate’s cards. Click here for an absentee ballot request form to mail in.
