Cherokee Nation Election Officials Begin Counting Today, Results Due Wednesday

The election for Cherokee Principal Chief is over and counting begins today.   Cherokee officials, which failed to provide adequate election results in the last election, say they will have votes counted by Wednesday.

On Friday, Cherokee Freedmen protested outside the BIA in Muskogee as many freedmen had not recieved their membership cards.

Marilyn Vann said they still have their 1866 Treaty Rights.     She drove 320 miles to exercise her right to vote and her committment to the process.
