Native America Calling: Native voting access update
Friday, October 16, 2020

As Election Day nears, worries about adequate access to the polls increase.

The Pasqua Yaqui Tribe in Arizona is fighting in court to restore the reservation’s only early voting station. In Alaska, the Arctic Village tribe and the League of Women’s Voters won the first round in their legal fight against the state’s new requirements for witness signatures on mail-in ballots.

And a Montana judge struck down a state law against collecting absentee ballots that Native voting rights advocates say would’ve limited voting access for tribes.

Join Native America Calling to get the latest in the evolving landscape determining what is limiting and strengthening access for Native Americans.
