Salt Lake County Democrats and the state AFL-CIO will hold a barbecue at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 17, to raise funds for a voter-registration drive now taking place on the Utah portion of the Navajo reservation.
The effort, called Native America Votes!, will attempt to register all 4,000 Navajos so they can vote this November. Traditionally, a low percentage of Navajos vote, but when they do they often vote Democratic, officials said.About 1,200 Navajos still have not been registered.
The barbecue will be held at the Fairmont Park Scout Circle, 2250 South 1100 East. Authentic Navajo food will be served and a raffle held of Navajo art. For more information call Monica Jenks, 972-2771, or Paulette Blair, 484-1200.
