Natives Vote is a left-of-center Native American activist organization formed by collaboration between left-of-center Native American activist organizations IllumiNative, Native Organizers Alliance, and the University of Colorado Boulder’s First Peoples Worldwide. 
Natives Vote produced and distributed artwork, including pieces showing the destruction of Mt. Rushmore,   as a part of its effort to expand Native American voter turnout in the 2020 election. Natives Vote receives research support and funding from left-of-center advocacy group NDN Collective and routes its online donations through the left-of-center ActBlue Charities.
History and Leadership
Natives Vote was founded as a collaborative effort between the left-of-center IllumiNative, Native Organizers Alliance, and University of Colorado Boulder’s First Peoples Worldwide to use the 2020 election as an “inflection point” to increase Native American political power and increase voter turnout throughout Indian Country.
Judith LeBlanc, former national vice-chair of the Communist Party USA  and director of the left-of-center Native Organizers Alliance, co-leads Natives Vote with Crystal Echohawk, director of the left-of-center IllumiNative.   Echohawk has made 62 donations to political candidates or committees since 2018, all either directly to Democratic Party candidates or routed through ActBlue.
Activities and Funding
Natives Vote focused on the production and distribution of artwork, videos, apparel, and gear (such as branded COVID face masks)  to increase Native American turnout around the country. Natives Vote’s branded “voting is sacred” t-shirts were “a few of the incentives used to energize voters” at two or more voting sites in Nevada.
Natives Vote’s 2020 election artwork collection to encourage voter participation includes two images which show the destruction of Mt. Rushmore along with “defend sovereignty,” “vote early,” and “vote” slogans. 
In addition to their art and media activities, Natives Vote co-hosted a town hall with IllumiNative and NOA to increase youth turnout in 2020 and asked individuals to call the phone number associated with the left-of-center Election Protection Coalition for voting assistance.
Prior to the 2020 election, Natives Vote used TurboVote, a project of Democracy Works, a non-profit that promotes the use of technology to increase voter engagement largely funded by left-of-center private foundations, to steer individuals to check registration status and register to vote on their site.
Despite being organization formed by the left-of-center IllumiNative, Native Organizers Alliance (NOA), and First Peoples Project,  Natives Vote also received financial support from the University of Colorado Boulder Outreach Awards Committee and received research funding from left-of-center advocacy group NDN Collective.
In 2020, Natives Vote hosted a 2020 election pledge on the left-of-center fundraising website Action Network and redirected potential donors to an ActBlue network fundraising webpage which informs donors that their donation will benefit the left-of-center Native Organizers Alliance and not the Natives Vote organization.
