ON Election Office offering survey seeking voter feedback

By

Osage News

Election Year 2016 is coming and the Osage Nation Election Office is seeking feedback from voters through an online survey.

The ON Election Office is seeking public input on potential changes to the current election laws. Any proposed changes will be considered by the Election Board, which will draft the law changes that will be submitted to the Fourth ON Congress for its consideration and approval during its next regular session, which is the 24-day Tzi-Zho Session starting Sept. 8.

According to the Election Board: “Our survey contains questions regarding important parts in the election process that affect every Osage Voter. In between each election year, we strive to improve the election process to make it easier for Osages to exercise their right to vote and have a voice in their government.”

The survey is only available online, but Osage voters who do not have computer access may call the Election Office and a staff member will complete the survey on their behalf. The ON Election Office can be reached at (877) 560-5286.

The election laws (also referred to as the election code) were last updated in 2013 to include a primary election for the Principal Chief and Assistant Principal Chief races (when there are more than two candidates in those races). The 2014 election was the first year for those primary elections.

The current election code (Bill No. ONCA 13-16) is available for viewing on the Election Office web page: www.osagenation-nsn.gov/what-we-do/elections/election-information  

Deadline to complete the election survey is Aug. 15, according to the election office.
