According to a news release, the tribe’s election board will meet to determine how to fill St. Germaine’s general tribal council seat.

St. Germaine could not be reached for comment as of press time.

Mike Allen, Sr. was re-elected vice president. He secured 455 votes compared to Melissa Christensen’s 376 votes.

Four tribal council seats were also up for election on Tuesday. The winners: Jamie Allen with 354 votes, Charles “Chuck” Burgess with 360 votes, John “Goober” Johnson with 408 votes and Frank Mitchell, Sr., with 342 votes.
