Law Enforcement Referendum Vote

July 12 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

On April 13, 2024, at a Regular Session of Council, the Council passed a resolution setting July 12, 2024, as the date of a referendum to determine whether the Seneca People support the creation and operation of a Seneca Nation police department at this time. The referendum is also intended to provide guidance as to whether the public supports entering deputation or jurisdictional arrangements with outside governments that would permit the Seneca Nation to exercise full criminal jurisdiction over non-Indians, as current federal case law has limited Native Nations’ authority over non-Indians.

Voting will take place at both Territory administration buildings.
