The Selkirk First Nation Election Postponed

    The Selkirk First Nation Election is postponed until May 6, 2020, due to the recent public health emergency declared in Yukon in response to COVID-19.

    Physical distancing requires voting in this election to be done by MAIL-IN BALLOTS ONLY.

    Ballots will be mailed to Whitehorse and Pelly-Crossing Citizens as soon as possible.

    All other Citizens outside of these two communities were already mailed ballots and they are still valid so please cast your vote on them. 

    Selkirk First Nation must receive your ballot by May 6, 2020, for it to be counted. Those who have already mailed their ballots, they are valid and will be counted.

    Citizens are reminded to update your mailing address.

    Selkirk First Nation will NOT hold a public meeting on May 7th to receive questions about the election or any candidate's request for a recount; an elector may submit a question and a candidate may request a recount by contacting Tanya Silverfox at the number or email provided before noon on May 7, 2020.

    This approach is supported by both the Yukon Chief Medical Officer and the legal opinion of SFN Election Legal Advisor.
