Michael Meuers on the Voter Registration Drive in Red Lake


Michael Meuers, journalist for the Red Lake Nation News, joins Heidi on the Friday Morning Show.  They discuss this year’s Voter Registration Drive taking place throughout the Red Lake Nation.  The drive was a success due to the efforts of enrolled Red Lake canvassers visiting their relatives, friends and fellow band members.  The drive has registered approximately 5,500 new Red Lake voters.

Michael’s article “Successful Voter Registration Drive at Red Lake” covers the success of the Voter Registration Drive and the hope to bus 20 to 50 voters per day to Auditors offices, using 75 drivers fanning out across the lands of Red Lake Nation, Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, and White Earth Nation.  You can read this article and learn more about this successful drive here.
