Why We Need to Vote.

It’s time to do this.”

“It’s time to vote White Earth, it’s time to join Native people nationally to rock the vote and change this country- that’s what millions of Americans are about to do.  But we have to work hard, because forces are working against voter participation.

 Here’s why you should vote- Tribal sovereignty is being threatened in the Courts, the legislature and Congress.  Health care faces cuts, and politicians are making decisions about our water and our wild rice which will impact all of us. 

Our future generations count on us voting. In fact, all of our well being is at stake. So, it’s time to put our power together.  To register to vote you just need valid ID and an address.  You can fill out a form this week and get a ballot sent to you or you can drive to the polls.” Winona LaDuke
