Elections


The Election Committee is an independent board of appointed officials in charge of conducting and certifying all tribal elections. All candidates running for election must register and certify their candidacy with the Election Committee. The Citizen Potawatomi Nation Election Code dictates that CPN members become eligible to vote at the age of 18.
