Six Nations Alcohol Referendum Results

On January 17th, 2015, the Six Nations Elected Council held a referendum vote for the purpose of determining whether Six Nations should develop its own alcohol regulations. This Referendum Vote was held at the Six Nations Community Hall between 10 am and 7 pm. The unofficial results of this Vote are as follows:

  • Total number of eligible voters over 18 as of January 2015: 20, 953
  • Total number of votes: 557
  • Total number of spoiled ballots: 7
  • Total number of ballots removed from site: 2

Therefore, the final results (unofficial until approved by Council) of the Referendum are:

  • Total votes for permissive alcohol regulations: 116 (21.21%)
  • Total votes for restrictive alcohol regulations: 196 (35.83%)
  • Total votes for no alcohol regulations: 235 (42.96%)
  • Total number of blank ballots: 10 (1.8%)

Based on voter participation, there will be no Six Nations alcohol regulations and therefore the brewery project has been abandoned. Council will be formally accepting the results of the referendum in February 2015.
