Tahltan Band Council Election 2016

Here is everything you’ll need to know about the upcoming 2016 Tahltan Band Election!

It was important for leadership this year to make it easier for as many Tahltan Band members to vote as possible. So to increase speed of delivery, mail-in ballots were sent to Vancouver to ensure they made it in time to be counted. Also, the addition of a third polling station in Vancouver will help more members cast their ballot. Make sure your voice is heard, get out and VOTE!
