Meetings roundup: Navajo Nation Council to attempt override on primary election
July 20, 2020
FARMINGTON — The Navajo Nation Council will attempt to override a veto from tribal President Jonathan Nez on the primary election for chapter governments.
Nez vetoed the council resolution to cancel the Aug. 4 primary election and conduct the general election on Nov. 3 by plurality vote, a move recommended by the Navajo Board of Election Supervisors to reduce the potential for exposure to COVID-19.
The override is among the items listed on the proposed agenda for the council's summer session this week.
