Abstract

Testimony presented on behalf of the tribal nations of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI), to the House Administration Committee, Subcommittee on Elections regarding the 2008 Native Vote program. The Native Vote Campaign is a national non-partisan effort to mobilize the American Indian and Alaska Native vote in collaboration with Tribal governments, regional inter-Tribals, the national Indian organizations, and urban Indian centers. In 2004, 2006, and 2008, Native Vote spearheaded this groundbreaking campaign to register and turn out a record number of American Indian and Alaska Native voters. Native Vote is about training and creating an election infrastructure within Native communities. Testimony discusses trends and obstacles to Indian voting and addresses the effect of ID requirements.
