Staying in play: Indian Country finds ways to vote

ARLEE - As Election Day 2020 approaches within nine days, does a blizzard coming south out of Canada count as international interference?

The threat of record-setting cold on Saturday canceled plans for a voter registration event and taco feed on the Arlee Pow Wow Grounds. Nevertheless, the success of a similar outreach effort last week in Hot Springs convinced organizers it was worth rescheduling.

"At Hot Springs last week, there was a guy who waited in line on a moped," said Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribal Get Out The Vote worker Mariah Camel. "It was raining a torrential downpour and starting to freeze, but he was determined to get registered to vote."
