While American Indians were expected to go to the polls in record numbers on Election Day, a national organization representing more than 250 tribes is still compiling numbers on the Indian turnout.

The National Congress of American Indians targeted 18 states with significant Indian populations as part of its Native Vote campaign. As of Monday, the NCAI was prepared to release voting results for only two states, Montana and New Mexico.
