Educate Yourself

Get Out The Native Vote aims to help educate voters and candidates alike. It is important that all Alaska Native/American Indian Voters are informed about candidates for office and key issues and that candidates are aware of and attentive to Native issues. Get Out The Native Vote also encourages more Native leaders to run for local, state, and federal office.

This strategy is comprised of three pieces:

  1. Assisting Alaska Native/American Indian people to be educated on the candidates and ballot measures.
  2. Educating the candidates on issues of importance to Alaska Native people and encouraging them to develop Native policy platforms.
  3. Encouraging more Native people to run for office. Get Out The Native Vote will be preparing materials to aid in this effort, working with regional organizations and other non‐profits to increase voter awareness and education efforts.
