ELTON, La. (AP) - Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana voters have re-elected David Sickey and elected Crystal Williams to their Tribal Council.

The American Press reports (https://bit.ly/1eOXZNb) Sickey won a fourth consecutive term with 144 votes. Williams was elected to her first term with 129 votes.

Since the election was for two council members, Coushatta Tribal Law provides the two individuals who receive the most votes are elected to those at-large positions.

Of the 501 tribe members registered to vote, 323 took part in Saturday’s election.

Inauguration ceremonies will be held June 10.
