A date has been set for the court-ordered school council election in Pelly Crossing.
Ballots will be cast July 7 to elect six council members for Eliza Van Bibber School.
A Yukon Supreme Court justice invalidated the original election last month and ordered a new one be held.
In the original election two proxy votes were accepted that should not have been.
The winner of the final council seat won by only two votes.
The election was the first one for a Pelly Crossing school council since 1991. All the other school councils after that were chosen by acclamation.
A total of 106 votes were cast. That’s about one third of the total population of the community.
Nomination day for the new election is June 26 and nominations close at noon. To qualify, a person must be 18 or older, be a Canadian citizen and be a resident in the school attendance area or have a child at the school.
Nomination papers will be available starting June 16 from the local returning officer or at the Yukon government administration building in Whitehorse.
