TAHLEQUAH, Okla.— Along with important decisions about elected leadership, Cherokee Nation voters will determine the outcome of three amendments to the tribe’s Constitution in the upcoming general election on Saturday, June 25. Registered voters who will not be able to vote in person on June 25 but who missed getting an absentee ballot can still vote as an “in-person absentee,” an early walk-in voting option.
In-person absentee voting is available to all registered voters, and will take place at the Cherokee Nation Election Office on Tuesday June 21 through Thursday June 23, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
The Cherokee Nation Election Office is located at 2116 S. Bald Hill Road in Tahlequah. A run-off election will be held on Saturday, July 23, to decide any races in which the candidate with the most votes did not receive more than 50 percent of the vote. Voters may request absentee ballots for that election by requesting them from the Election Office through July 4.
