Elections & Voting
The General Election, and Primary Election (if required), occurs every three (3) years when the Oneida Business Committee is elected. All other elections are Special Elections. Eligible voter may cast a ballot at one of two polling locations at all elections. Picture ID must be presented in order to vote.
Eligible voters may become candidates by one of two ways. They may be nominated at the caucus and be present at the caucus to accept the nomination. They may also petition by obtaining ten (10) verified signatures of Tribal members eligible to vote at the time of the signature. In all instances, an application must be completed and returned by the appropriate deadline.
The Oneida Election Law sets the rules for elections, recounts, and challenges. It also sets the role and responsibilities of the Oneida Election Board.
