QUOTE: "Restrictive voting laws that leave Native communities on the sidelines: Many Native Americans, especially those who live on reservations, do not have traditional street addresses. This has resulted in voter registration applications being rejected in many states. Even when accepted, the current format of registration forms often doesn’t incorporate this reality. States with voter ID laws often do not accept tribal IDs as a valid form of identification."
QUOTE: "This alleged voter fraud shouldn't trump Native Americans' fundamental rights," Ferguson-Bohnee said. "This is a practice, a targeted practice to try and suppress the vote."
