SCOTUS Rules for ND Voter ID Law, Disenfranchising Some Native Voters

HeadlineOct 10, 2018

In more legal news, the Supreme Court ruled Tuesday it will allow North Dakota to enforce its new voter ID requirement during the 2018 midterm elections. A federal judge had temporarily blocked the stricter voter ID law, which will require voters to show identification demonstrating a residential street address, after Native American challengers argued the new rule disproportionately disenfranchises their communities. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg wrote a dissent, joined by Justice Kagan. Newly seated Justice Kavanaugh did not take part in the decision.
