Choctaw Tribal Election Results

The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians held tribal elections Tuesday. The results are still unofficial.

Six communities had tribal council offices on the ballot. Over seventy people were on the ballot.

The results are still unofficial, because absentee ballots have not been tabulated. That process begins Wednesday at 1 p.m.

Officials said the final certified results are expected to be available no later than Friday.

    Why is it that the Chief was able to "give away" 800 tickets to the Tim Mcgraw concert for VOTES...While the people that PAID for tickets had to stand up during the concert? That place has been a JOKE since Miko took over!!!You've got millions of dollars invested in the Golden Moon,while it sits EMPTY 95% of the time.What's up with that??? This Chief doesn't have a clue as to how to run a Casino, much less a tribe !!!!!! Miko needs to GO !!!!!
