Oneidas Get Out the Vote

By Elizabeth Christensen

Vernon, NY – The Oneida Indian Nation has spent the past few weeks "getting out the vote."

Last week, they held a voter registration day for all employees. That event resulted in 100 new voters.

The Nation has also been holding informational meetings, examining where certain candidates stand on issues related to the Oneida Nation and it's enterprises.

Oneida Nation spokesman Mark Emery says the nation isn't trying to influence how employees vote next Tuesday. He say the Nation is being a responsible corporate citizen.

The Oneida Nation will call all of it's employees on election day, reminding them to vote.
