Lhtako Dené Nation chief and council will remain unchanged from the last term after an election was held Tuesday, March 22.
Members of the Indigenous community just south of Quesnel re-elected Clifford Lebrun to the office of chief, and Raymond Aldred, Timothy Michell and Wanda-Lee Aldred to the office of councillor.
A total of 44 voters cast their vote in person at Lhtako Dené Hall, and another 10 by mail.
For the first time, voters could also cast their votes electronically, with 39 people selecting that option.
“Congratulations to the voters—93 voters is a huge leap from the 75 of the last election,” Indigenous technology company OneFeather said on its website, congratulating chief and council.
“Electronic voting has made a popular and successful debut.”
This year marked the first election under Lhtako Dené Nation’s new election code in which Michell will serve a four-term after claiming the highest councillor vote total.
A general election was previously held in 2020.
