Utah: U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby has handed down new voting districts in San Juan County a year after he declared the boundaries unconstitutional and discriminatory against Native American voters. County commissioner Phil Lyman told the Associated Press that the county plans to appeal.
North Dakota: Attorneys representing several members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa have filed a new complaint challenging voter ID law. The amended complaint asks a federal judge to declare House Bill 1369 unconstitutional and prevent it from being implemented, arguing that it violates the national Voting Rights Act. The bill, sponsored by Republican lawmakers, was signed into law by Gov. Doug Burgum in late April.
