Civic Engagement

NATIVE HEALTH staff are trained and ready to assist with county and state elections, as well as the Navajo Nation elections. Staff are available days, evenings, and weekends.

NATIVE HEALTH Central is a designated National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) site under Section 20506(a)(3)(A)(ii) of the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA), and Arizona state law, ARS 16-142. If you are not registered to vote where you live now, you can apply to register to vote here today. Your decision to register or not will not affect the services you are eligible to receive nor the amount of assistance that you will be provided by NATIVE HEALTH. 

This site is the first in Indian Health Service in the country, and the first in Arizona.
