The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs (AMC) and Elections Manitoba are trying to make it easier for First Nations people to vote in the October 3, 2023 Provincial Election. Elections Manitoba is working with the AMC to overcome one of the most common barriers that inhibits First Nation People from Voting – the lack of proper identification. To overcome this obstacle, “a declaration of First Nations guarantor for proof of identity form“
has been developed to replace any government issued ID. The form must be filled out by your home community leadership, the Chief, or a Council Member or the Band Membership Clerk.
Currently, all voters must produce one government-issued ID or two documents including the voter’s name before they can enter the voting booth.
There is a Fillable PDF Form you can fill out at this link.
