Indian Country has been historically undercounted and underrepresented. However, the Native and Alaska Native population is increasing and now makes up a significant share of the population in traditional swing states where the Native Vote has made a difference in recent local, state, and national races. Your voice counts!
If you misplace your ballot, didn’t receive it, or just can’t get it in with sufficient lead time, plan on voting in-person, early or on Election Day. In some precincts that use e-pollbooks, the election officials may know you did not return your mail-in ballot and allow you to vote normally. If not, request a “provisional ballot” and cast your vote that way. Once they verify that your mail-in ballot was not returned (they are doing their due diligence), this provisional ballot would then be counted.
