Native American Voting Rights  

The Native Americans were granted United States citizenship only eighty years ago. Until then, the Native Americans were treated as outcasts and their lands were snatched and many of them were sent out of the country. The Native Americans in the US have had several set backs because they were primitive in their practices, being uneducated, and also they did not know English.

They were severely handicapped to live a normal social life in the United States of America. However, they have come a long way from that and soon after being accepted as a part of the country, they had access to education and so on.

They found their own way of coming up in life and now the Native Americans have become very keen and involved in the electoral press. The elections of 2004 carried several issues related to the Native Americans.

The Native Americans are also considered as the citizens of America and they have equal voting rights as anyone else. The constituency allows people to vote irrespective of their caste, color, race and sex and provided they are the citizens of the country. Any citizen who is above the age of 18 can vote in the US. In states like South Dakota, the Native Indians are very active with their voting rights and in fact, it helped Senator Johnson win in the year 2002. It has been very difficult for this particular community to come so far with voting and so on. Even today the Native Americans struggle in many ways.
