Native groups working to get out Indigenous voters in charged election

Minnesota's 80,000 Indigenous are being courted like never before for votes.

DULUTH – The chief executive of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe took to the stage at a news conference in Duluth on Sunday and repeated what she has been telling band members for weeks: “Get out there and vote, and take your friends and relatives to vote.”

“We know in Indian Country when we get out the vote, we make the difference,” Melanie Benjamin said.

Minnesota’s nearly 80,000 Indigenous voters are being courted like never before in an election where increased turnout could prove decisive. In recent weeks the Red Lake Nation reported registering 5,500 new voters, while an event on the Leech Lake Reservation netted 500 new voter registrations.

For weeks now I have heard the "GOTV Native Style" on Am950 progressive radio.
There has maybe 2-3 hours a day of GOTV for Native Peoples. It is inspiring!
