Election Information

Miskwaabekong - the Red Cliff Reservation - is governed by an elected nine-member Tribal Council. This Tribal Council consists of a Tribal Chairperson, Vice Chair, Treasurer, Secretary, and five At Large Members. Tribal Council elections occur annually in July and are staggered so the entire council cannot be replaced simultaneously. Each council member serves a two-year term. On odd years there is an election for Chairperson, Treasurer, and three At Large seats. On even years there is an election for Vice Chair, Secretary, and two At Large seats.
