Tribal Government

The Aroostook Band of Micmacs Tribal Elections

The Aroostook Band of Micmacs holds tribal elections every two years. Our annual meetings are held in April with nominations to our government happening on odd numbered years.

Upon successful completion of nominations, our election is held on the second Tuesday in May followed by the newly elected government taking their seats at the next regular Tribal Council meeting.

Our next election process will take place in 2021 for Tribal Chief, Vice-Chief, and top three seats then again in 2023 for the bottom four seats on Tribal Council will be elected.
