Excerpt from the NVN Constitution and By Laws describing the process for filling Council vacancies:
Section 7. Vacancies:
In the event that any elective Tribal Council seat becomes vacant between elections, the Tribal Council President, after first determining if the person consents to serve, shall recommend a person who meets the requirements of a Candidate to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the term. Such person shall assume office upon approval of the appointment by a majority of the members of the Tribal Council. If a majority of the members do not consent to the appointment, the Tribal Council may choose, by a majority vote, to either direct the President to select another candidate or approve a candidate nominated by a member.
If a Tribal Council member fails to attend three (3) consecutive regular meetings of the Tribal Council, without a written excuse accepted by a majority vote of the Tribal Council, that Tribal Council member’s seat will be declared vacant and the vacancy shall be filled in accordance with this section.
