Native American voting assistance passes Legislature


March 11, 2019

OLYMPIA – Some unique challenges tribal members face in voting could be removed under a bill that received final approval in the Legislature on Friday.

If signed by Gov. Jay Inslee, the Native American Voting Rights Act would allow tribal members to request voter registration services be provided at state and tribal facilities on reservations. Voters could register using those buildings’ address as well, or register using nontraditional addresses. They could register online with valid tribal identification cards, and tribes could request additional ballot drop boxes and determine their placement.
