Nevada group offered gift cards for voting — and a state agency promoted it

It’s a lot eas­i­er to get peo­ple to vote when you pay them. Just ask the Neva­da Native Vote Project.

The Neva­da Native Vote Project orga­nizes and mobi­lizes “trib­al vot­ers through direct advo­ca­cy,” accord­ing to its Face­book page. Few things are more direct than offer­ing peo­ple the chance to win Visa gift cards for vot­ing. But it’s not a wide­ly used strat­e­gy. Fed­er­al law pro­hibits offer­ing or mak­ing “an expen­di­ture to any per­son, either to vote or with­hold his vote.”

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Big Tech is at war with you! They don't want you to see the truth.

DONT LET THEM WIN THE WAR!
