Hopi Opens Up Candidate Eligibility For Fall Elections

Hopi officials have announced eligible tribal members may petition for candidacy in tribal elections this year.

The Tribe will hold primary and general elections this fall for Hopi Chair and Vice Chair. Eligible candidates must be at least 25 years old, reside on the reservation, and speak the Hopi language, among other requirements. Forms to petition for candidacy were made available this week at the Kykotsmovi elections office. Current Chairman Timothy Nuvangyaoma was inaugurated in 2017.
