SWO Primary Election Results

Preliminary results are in from the Sisseton Wahpeton Oyate Primary Election held Tuesday, Oct. 6. The top two vote getters for each race advance to the General Election.

Facing off for Tribal Chairperson in the General Election will be Delbert Hopkins Jr. and Ella Robertson.

There was no Primary Election for Tribal Vice-Chair or Tribal Secretary, as there were only two contenders in those races, both of whom automatically advance. For Tribal Vice-Chair, Eddie Johnson and Lisa Jackson are running, and for Tribal Secretary, the race will be between Myrna Thompson and Winfield Rondell Jr. For more of this story and many more please purchase a copy of this weeks Sisseton Courier on news stands now or purchase a copy of the e-edtion from this website.
