17 candidates will vie for votes Tuesday for a chance to represent Fort Totten on the Spirit Lake tribal council.

The Fort Totten district seat has been vacant for nearly a month, ever since former seat-holder Russ McDonald was sworn in as the tribal chairman.

The top two vote getters in the election will square off in an runoff election next week, to determine who will be named to the council. Voting starts Tuesday morning at 9 am at the tribal blue building.
