The Native American Voting Rights Program offers a wide range of services designed to ensure access to the electoral process for members of the Pueblos of Cochiti, Jemez, Santo Domingo, San Felipe, Santa Ana, Zia and Sandia, as well as the Navajo Chapters of Counselor, Ojo Encino and Torreon.
These services include voter education and awareness training and voter registration drives. Voting rights coordinators travel across the county throughout the year conducting election-focused presentations, workshops and training sessions at schools, community centers, senior centers and other venues such as community health fairs and conferences.
When necessary, the voting rights coordinators also translate election-related material—including ballots—into the appropriate Native language (Keres, Towa, Navajo).
All information provided by the voting rights coordinators is non-partisan. They never advise voters—including those needing language translation assistance—on which candidates or ballot questions to select.
