The 2014 midterm elections in November are an opportunity for voters to make their voice heard by local, state and federal officials. In Native America, voters are also casting ballots in tribal elections this year. Did you cast a ballot in a tribal election in 2014? Are candidates still out talking to members of your community for an upcoming election? Do you vote only in your tribal elections? Or do you choose not to vote because you moved to the city and it’s hard to follow what’s going on back home? Join us as we explore tribal elections in our 2014 Election series on Native America Calling.
