March 15th is a referendum vote for Warm Springs Tribal Voters. The referendum question asks Tribal voters to add the 1980 census to the list of baseline census years for determining the Confederated Tribes blood quantum. This is not an enrollment election. KWSO will rebroadcast our Warm Springs Program about the enrollment next week to help inform voters about this referendum. The March 15th vote will take place at the Community Center from 8am to 8pm. There is a voter turnout requirement for the referendum vote to be valid and so KWSO encourages all eligible tribal member voters to cast your ballot – either way – so the referendum vote will count.
