Creek Election 2011

The 2011 Creek Elections are set for September 17. This years elections will represent one of the most important and historical elections in the Muscogee Nation’s history. For the first time, an at-large voting system has been put in place for the National Council seats.  This system was created by the infamous constitutional amendment A67.   This system has no residency requirements for the voters and allows citizens to vote for the candidates of other districts. Each and every district will become the minority vote when it becomes time to vote for who they want to represent their district.  This is because no single district has enough potential votes to overcome the potential votes of the rest of the Nation if they so decide to choose a different candidate than the resident voters.

If a council representative does get elected and also receives the majority vote from the resident district voters, it is mostly by chance.   So when you begin to wonder, why it seems that your district is never getting who they wanted.  And think to yourself , “I don’t know anyone who voted for that candidate”. It’s probably because you didn’t vote those people in. The rest of the Nation voted them in for you.
