With more than 460,000 citizens, the Cherokee Nation has the ability to become a powerful voice in political life, but it can’t happen without a registered and mobilized voting populace. Cherokee Vote began in 2013 to encourage citizen participation in tribal, city, county and federal elections. Similar to the nationwide Native Vote campaign, Cherokee Vote goes to local communities to help Cherokee Nation citizens with voter registration. Until the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, Native people were not counted as U.S. citizens. Now is the time for Cherokees to help steer policies affecting future generations.
