Native American Voting Rights acts introduced in Congress

Freshman Senator Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM) has introduced a new bill known as the Native American Voting Rights Act (NAVRA), or S. 2702. The bill includes provisions that would require poll workers everywhere to accept all tribally-issued forms of identification; help voters without addresses or access to mail delivery to more easily register to vote, as well as to acquire and submit ballots; and facilitate the creation of more polling places on tribal lands. US Representatives Sharice Davids (D-KS-3) and Tom Cole (R-OK-4) have submitted a companion bill to the House of Representatives.
