Re: “AFN set to release election priorities as aboriginal vote continues to mobilize,” (The Hill Times, Aug. 31, p. 1). It’s important to clarify and correct some information in the article about the Assembly of First Nations’ (AFN) work related to voting in the 2015 federal election. The AFN is reaching out directly to band administrators in First Nations communities on where, when, and ways to register and vote in the 2015 federal election. To help focus our efforts, the AFN prioritized electoral districts with large First Nations populations living on reserves and those communities that face barriers to voting. The variables considered as part of this prioritization exercise include the total Registered Indian Population, First Nation population, percentage of the Registered Indian Population over the age of 18, language other than English, access to polling stations in the 2011 federal election, identification and connectivity. The AFN is establishing a call centre as part of this effort and will provide band administrators with information on identification requirements including the letters of confirmation of residence to be prepared by band managers. Contrary to the statement in the article, however, the AFN is not “prioritizing their calls, centred around the 51 ridings the AFN has previously announced they’d be targeting, as well as to rural reserves and reserves with historically low turnout.” The calls are being prioritized based on the above noted criteria. The AFN is working with Election Canada to ensure band managers have the correct information about the registration, identification requirements, and the voting process.
