10/09/08 - Tribe hosts voter registration drive


Activist groups and community organizations have been busy over the past few weeks getting people to register to vote. The deadline to register by mail was Oct. 4. People can still register in person at the Pierce County Auditor’s Office until Oct. 20. Puyallup Tribe of Indians hosted a voter registration event at a building owned by the tribal government Oct. 3. Craig Bill, a member of Native Vote Washington, said the organization was formed two years ago to increase the number of Native-American voters.
