Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That in any election heretofore or hereafter held under the Act of June 18, 1934 (48 Stat. 984), on the question of excluding a reservation, from the application of the said Act or on the question of adopting a constitution and bylaws or amendments thereto or on the question of ratifying a charter, the vote of a majority of those actually voting shall be necessary and sufficient to effectuate such exclusion, adoption, or ratification, as the case may be: Provided, however, That in each instance the total vote cast shall not be less than 30 per centum of those entitled to vote.
The time for holding elections on the question of excluding a reservation from the application of said Act of June 18, 1934, is hereby extended to June 18, 1936.
If the period of trust or of restriction on any Indian land has not, before the passage of this Act, been extended to a date subsequent to December 31, 1936, and if the reservation containing such lands has voted or shall vote to exclude itself from the application of the Act of June 18, 1934, the periods of trust or the restrictions on alienation of such lands are hereby extended to December 31, 1936.
All laws, general and special, and all treaty provisions affecting any Indian reservation which has voted or may vote to exclude itself from the application of the Act of June 18, 1934 (48 Stat. 984), shall be deemed to have been continuously effective as to such reservation, notwithstanding the passage of said Act of June 18, 1934. Nothing in the Act of June 18, 1934, shall be construed to abrogate or impair any rights guaranteed under any existing treaty with any Indian tribe, where such tribe voted not to exclude itself from the application of said Act.
Approved, June 15, 1935.
