White Kimba, Australia, voted “Yes” to a nuclear waste dump, but the traditional Aboriginal owners held a separate ballot, with a “No” result

The Australian government held a “community” vote. in a small outback town, on whether or not they should accept a nuclear waste dump. Not surprisingly, what appeared to be generous financial incentives, particularly for the white landholders who volunteered their land.  Unfortunately the traditional Barngarla Aboriginal owners were excluded from the vote. So they held their own separate vote.
