CROW AGENCY, Mont. – Democratic Candidate John Meyer will be grilling bison burgers and helping tribal members become registered to vote at the Crow Administrative Building this Wednesday from 12-5 pm and Thursday from 10-5 pm.
Crow Tribal members that have not already registered to vote will need to bring a Driver’s license, Montana ID card, or the last 4 numbers of their social security number along with a Tribal ID, School ID Card, or Utility Bill that shows address.

John Meyer said he would like to get more Crow involved in Democracy. “I don’t care who people vote for, I just want them to vote.”
Meyer’s organization, Cottonwood Environmental Law Center, currently has a lawsuit against Governor Bullock and Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke for not allowing Yellowstone bison to freely roam outside of Yellowstone National Park. “Governor Bullock and Secretary Zinke need to let bison roam freely outside of Yellowstone National Park to provide more hunting opportunities and food for the Crow.” Meyer’s organization brought students from Little Big Horn College to Yellowstone National Park earlier this year to teach them about their treaty
rights and learn more about Yellowstone bison.
Meyer said he is planning to cook bison and get Northern Cheyenne voters registered to vote next week in Lame Deer.
