Increasing Native American voter turnout

The National Congress of American Indians has scheduled a week of voter education and registration events starting Monday to boost turnout for the November sixth general election.

KJZZ’s Steve Goldstein has more.

The National Congress will host events in more than one hundred thirty communities across the country, including efforts to help identify tribal members who need to register to vote. Kids will also be involved, as tribal schools and Native youth programs present opportunities for civics education.
