Editorial: Get out and vote in Navajo Nation primary

"On the Navajo Nation Tuesday, voters will be asked to pick presidential candidates for the Nov. 7 general election.

About 96,500 of the tribe's 300,000 members are eligible to vote in the primary that includes the election of council delegates. Elections officials say they are hopeful the turnout will surpass 50 percent.

It's time for the tribe's eligible voters to shape the future of the Nation by nominating the right candidates to run for election in the fall. The time for complaint and criticism is over, since people can use their votes Tuesday to steer their respective candidate. "
