Voter Registration at Indian Health Clinic Can Boost Indian Turnout at Polls

Voting should be easy, almost routine. If it’s election day, we should vote. It’s that simple because it’s the very foundation of democracy. It is only when “we” have a say in what happens next, in our future, that governance meets the basic test of a democracy.

But, too often, that’s not the case for American Indians and Alaska Natives. This week the National Congress of American Indians called the problem of access to voting a “civic emergency” requiring an immediate fix.
