Native America Calling
June 12, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Today, June 12, 2020 – Native voter suppression
A new report finds serious barriers to the polls for some Native American voters. As the presidential election nears, the Native American Rights Fund warns voting registration purges, I.D. laws, address requirements, and limited polling stations all hamper Native voter participation. The report is drawn from personal accounts by hundreds of Native voters in listening sessions around the country. The coronavirus pandemic could exacerbate an already challenging situation as some states are moving to also restrict mail-in ballots. We’ll talk to the authors of the report about what they say needs to happen to make voting more accessible to Native people.
