Voting Turnout in North Dakota May Be One of Its Best Ever
Back in August, a North Dakota judge's decision to block the state's restrictive voter ID law has the state in position to have one of its best voter turnouts ever.
Just over three months ago, members of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians filed a lawsuit claiming voter ID requirements in North Dakota were unconstitutional and disproportionately impacted Native Americans. They challenged the law that would require voters to have a valid address on their I.D. cards.
Since the decision to block the restrictive voter ID law, voter affidavits are required for people who want to vote, but don't have a valid address on their I.D. cards, making voting easier and more accessible.
This could lead to an overall greater voter turnout. It remains to be seen what the final voter numbers will be. We'll certainly have an answer after tomorrow.
