For most Americans, the right to vote is guaranteed in the U.S. Constitution; however, the federal government denied Native Americans voting rights until 1924, and some states waited until the 1960s to extend this vital right. Native Americans still face discriminatory laws and unreasonable burdens when trying to exercise the right to vote. Some states have enacted voting schemes such as districting that effectively dilute Indian votes.
