On the receiving end of last week’s Blackfeet Primary, Emma Kate Fish, Jolene DeRoche, Sandra Reevis and Karlissa Heavy Runner were among the election workers who kept things moving and orderly.

A total of 2,830 votes were cast in the 2018 Blackfeet Primary held on Tuesday, June 5. Unofficial results show the two incumbents still running for their positions emerged victorious, although Nelse St. Goddard came in a close second to Vera Weaselhead in Heart Butte Position 4 while Iliff “Scott” Kipp won a decisive win over second-placer George “GG” Kipp III in Old Agency Position 8.

In other races, newcomer Rodney “Minnow” Gervais Jr. topped James McNeely Jr. in Browning Position 2 by 50 votes, sending the pair to the General. Mark Pollock won a clear victory over two candidates who tied for second place in Browning Position 3 - Paul McEvers and Jay Dusty Bull, leading to a three-person race in the General. And finally, in Seville Position 6, Stacey Gilham (Keller) came in far ahead of second placer Jimmy St. Goddard, with the pair vying for the final vote.

Voters will have three weeks to mull over the choices available to them in the June 26 General Election.
