Nevada voting raffle targeting Native Americans opens door to Trump legal challenge

A get-out-the-vote effort by a Neva­da Native Amer­i­can group includ­ed a raf­fle with cash prizes, open­ing the door to a legal chal­lenge by the Trump cam­paign that the incen­tives ran afoul of fed­er­al elec­tion law. The group denies that it did any­thing ille­gal in the lead-up to the 2020 election.

The Neva­da Native Vote Project, a group that seeks to “increase civic par­tic­i­pa­tion of the Indige­nous pop­u­la­tions in Neva­da,” spon­sored a “vir­tu­al raf­fle” dur­ing this year’s pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, accord­ing to a post on the group’s Face­book page.

The event, spon­sored joint­ly with the Reno-Sparks Indi­an Colony, informed vot­ers that they would be entered in a raf­fle if they sent in a pho­to­graph of them­selves with an “I Vot­ed” stick­er and/or a “bal­lot com­ple­tion form.”

Among the prizes in the raf­fle were four $250 gift cards, four $100 gift cards and eight $25 gift cards, as well as “bead­work, t‑shirts & more,” the raf­fle poster advertised.

Sub­se­quent posts from the group showed numer­ous raf­fle win­ners. “Thank you for vot­ing!” some of the posts read.
