Southern Ute elections too close to call

Four candidates will compete for two seats on the Southern Ute Tribal Council in a runoff election after unofficial election results posted Nov. 1 showed races too close to call. Former chairman James “Mike” Olguin and Ramona Eagle, a former council member, tied with 91 votes, according to a Twitter post by the SUIT communications department. Adam Red, the only incumbent candidate, was just behind with 90 votes, and Marjorie Barry, an employee of the tribe, received 78 votes.
