Native Voter - 2004
The National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) and the DC Native American Bar Association (NABA DC) are coordinating a national effort to place election daypoll-watchers throughout Indian Country, both on reservations and in urban Indian communities.
The primary goal of the Native Vote 2004: ElectionProtection Project is to recruit and train local and Native attorneys, law students, and volunteers who are from, or are sensitive to, Indian Country to help develop election law expertise and infrastructure within our communities. We will be working with the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights (LCCR) to provide non-partisan training, and non-partisan election day poll watching deployment to Native communities in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, NorthDakota, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon,Washington, and Wisconsin.
If you would like more information, or would like to volunteer to be trained to work in a Native community for election day, please contact your state's NativeVote Election Protection coordinator.
