Navajo Nation officials have certified results for the tribe’s general election.

Jonathan Nez won the tribal presidency with 65 percent of the vote.

Tribal members also elected representatives to the Navajo Nation Council, the Election Board and other offices.

This comes a month after some Navajo Nation voting machines rejected over-marked ballots.

Affected voters were allowed to cast late ballots.
