Chief and Council of Henvey Inlet First Nation launched a second Referendum with an adjusted development plan as of October 13, 2005 to seek approval from its Members to “designate” a reduced portion of Henvey Inlet Reserve #2, as compared to the plan submitted for the vote held on August 25, 2005.  

The final vote was held on November 24, 2005 at the Community Fire Hall.

Here are the results:

November 24, 2005
2nd Referendum, 1st Vote
YES   94
NO   72

 168 total votes cast with two spoiled ballots.

Referendum regulations require that 50% plus 1 of the total eligible voters must cast ballots to pass on a first vote (469 Total, 50% plus 1=235).  As only 168 electors cast ballots, this proposal must be submitted to the membership for a second vote.

A simple majority is required on the second vote to either support or reject the proposals.
