The Desert Southwest Voting Rights Hearing is tomorrow at ASU Law.

The purpose of the hearing is to document barriers to registration and voting in non-tribal (federal, state, and local) elections. These hearings are the most comprehensive to date that focus exclusively on voting issues throughout Indian Country. Information from the hearings will be used to promote public education, to identify policy solutions, and to consider legal remedies to expand Native access to voting. After the hearings are completed, NAVRC will release a report summarizing obstacles to Native voter participation and identifying possible solutions to election administrators, legislators, and attorneys who specialize in voting rights cases. The testimony delivered at the hearing play a critical role in building that record.

Tribal leaders, students, tribal members and attorneys will be presenting testimony. Come join the Native American Voting Rights Coalition for this important event.
