Every Native Vote Counts

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Challenges Two Montana Laws that Disenfranchise Voters on Reservations. Rual Reservations are some of the most Isolated Voter locations in the U.S.

in 2021, the Montana Legislsture passed The Laws that make it even more Difficult for Native Voters to cast their Vote.

H.B. 176 - Ends Same-Day Voter Registration.

H.B. 530 - Blocks Ballot Collection on Rural Reservations.

The ACLU, ACLU of Montana, Native American Rights Fund, and the Election Law Clinic at Harvid Law School, are Challenging the Bills on behalf of Western Native Voice (WNV) and Montana Native Vote, Organizations working to increase Civic participation in Native Communities, and Four Tribal Nations.

State Legislators know that Native Americans are Far from Voter Registration opportunities and Polling sites, limiting the window of Opportunity to Vote on Reservations, by definition, Oppression is Prolonged, Unjust, treatment.

That is what's happening in Montana and to its Native Communities.

Montana is one of the Battlegrounds for this National Distruct in our Democratic system of Elections. Voter Suppression and recent Ballot Initiatives are a Direct Threat to Democracy.

Montana can be a testing ground for efforts to turn the Tide.
