Federal Agency Issues Voter Guides in Native American and Alaska Native LanguagesCitizens who speak Navajo, Cherokee, Dakota and Yup’ik, the most commonly spoken Native American and Alaska Native languages in the U.S., will now have access to federal election voter guides in their native languages.
