Red Lake Releases Official Election Results for District Representatives

Red Lake Nation voters cast ballots in four tribal council member elections this week, and official results for each race have now been posted.

Incumbent Robert “Bob” Smith won the Red Lake Representative election by taking in more than 65% of the vote. For the Ponemah Representative seat, incumbent Glenda J. Martin won the race with a little more than 51% of the vote. Any candidates that gather more than 50% of the vote in the general election automatically win.

The other two contests are heading to run-off elections. The Redby Representative election saw incumbent Allen D. Pemberton gain 48% of the vote and Herman Donnell get 36%. Those two will now compete in the run-off election.

In the Little Rock Representative race, Thomas Barrett was the top vote-getter with 41% of the vote. Incumbent Michelle Barrett-Cobenais was supported by 35% of voters. These two will now also head to a run-off election.
