Tools for Registration - Native Vote is offering several tools to help you register voters online and within your communities.
Rock the Vote Widget - Direct people to the NativeVote.org website to register today or register eligible voters on your own website by embedding the Rock the Vote registration widget. Code and instructions are available here.Planning on hosting your own registration drive? Visit Rock the Vote's website to learn more about what you need to know: http://live.rockthevote.com.
Turbo Vote - This year, we are piloting a powerful online tool called TurboVote to make registration and absentee voting as easy as possible. This is an especially powerful tool for voters with limited access to the polls or those living away from home. In most Native Vote focus states anyone can request a mail-in ballot, for any reason (called no-excuse absentee voting) and every state allows commuters, college students, and others with valid excuses to vote absentee.
This service is provided by the Native Vote campaign at no cost to your tribe. Voters need only enter their information one time through the website and they will receive all materials (registration forms, absentee ballot application, and absentee ballot) via mail, and optional reminders via email or text.
