Released | August 1, 2014 | Print this article Print this article

Nunavut Tunngavik Inc. today launched an enrolment campaign in order to update the NTI Voters List before the election for vice-president on Dec. 8, 2014. Inuit who are 16 years or older on Dec. 8, 2014 and enrolled under the Nunavut Land Claims Agreement are included on the Voters List, indicating they are eligible to vote in NTI Elections. Inuit are asked to visit the NTI website at voterslist.tunngavik.com to check if they are on the Voters List and if the information on the Voters List is correct.

If you believe you are eligible to vote on Dec. 8, but are not on the list, which likely indicates you are not enrolled under the NLCA, please contact the community liaison officer in your associated community. The community enrolment committee in each community is responsible for reviewing applications for enrolment.

Inuit who are on the list are asked to check the spelling of their names and ensure it matches the spelling on their identification. Inuit are asked to check that the community they are associated with is accurate. Please note that your associated community is usually the community where you were initially enrolled or the traditional community of your family. It is not necessarily where you currently reside.
If the information is accurate, you don’t need to do anything. If the information is incorrect, email NTI Enrolment Coordinator Margaret Kusugak at mkusugak@tunngavik.com with the correct information. You can also call Margaret Kusugak in Rankin Inlet at 867-645-5400 or toll-free at 1-888-236-5400. Inuit can also contact the community liaison officer in their community with the correct information.

Eligible voters have until Oct. 24, 2014 to update the information on the Voters List.
