The incumbent Cherokee Nation chief faces his old rival in tomorrow's tribal election.

Chief Chad Smith defeated Robert Byrd four years ago. Byrd believes Cherokee voters are ready for a change in leadership.

Two others are also candidate for the chief position. A run-off, if necessary, will be held July 26.
