Voting efforts neglect Native Americans

U.S. citizens have picked Donald Trump as their president-elect, but many are left unsatisfied with the choice. Resentful voters glossed over an important, yet often forgotten, public—communities that are unable to vote because of where their members live or how they live.

Native Americans stand out as a prime example. As Vox reported, “Those who live on reservations often do not have standard addresses reflected on both the rolls and their photo ID, which are now used to verify a person’s polling location and eligibility to vote.” Because of address inaccuracies, mailing in a ballot can also be an issue. To top that off, Native Americans who live in reservations have to drive for hours to get to polling stations and many of them do not even have access to a car. Thus, a disadvantaged and underrepresented community has its right to vote hindered.

While Facebook’s effort to get millennials to vote is admirable, the energy put toward this effort was wasted. Facebook should have given more attention to a meaningful purpose, like encouraging the suffrage of Native Americans, who have already suffered enough. This would have had a larger impact as opposed to gaining the vote of citizens who have already decided whether or not to vote.
