Hopi Tribe Constitution Draft 24A Defeated

I just received word from Benjamin Nuvamsa that the proposed Hopi Tribe Constitution Draft 24A has been defeated.

Vote: 656 NO; 410 YES

I hope to get official word on the matter in the morning, and I will be sure to update this post with any new information.
