Community Actions to Encourage Voter Participation

Take care of yourself first, then take care of those around you.

  • Make sure you are registered and your registration matches your current address.

Hold an election day party near polling locations.

  • Be sure to invite voters and non-voters because it is illegal to pay people to vote!

If you have the resources, provide rides/shuttles to the polls.

Contact your tribal council and request that they create tribal voter guides.

Encourage young people to encourage older people to vote.

  • Youth-led movements are very effective. Encourage high school students to talk to their families about the importance of voting.

If you encounter problems during voting, report them.

Check out the resources available from Native Vote.
