MCK By-election Nominations Saturday
Written by Jim Connell on October 4, 2019
One seat is up for grabs at the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake. Electoral Officer Angus Montour will be accepting nominations at the Kahnawà:ke Services Complex Lobby from 10 am to noon on Saturday. Montour says those who intend to run are encouraged to verify their eligibility with the Office of the Kahnawà:ke Kanien’kehá:ka Registry and arrive with their nominator and seconder (both of whom must be at least 18 years of age and meet the requirements of the Kahnawà:ke Election Law.
“Because in the past we have had a couple of instances where the candidate and the nominator was there, but not the seconder,” Montour said. “We would be waiting around for them and importantly they have to be there within the two hours. If the candidate only has one signer and the other one doesn’t come before the deadline, the nomination i no longer valid.”
