Even as efforts have been made over the years to give voting rights to minorities in America, particularly the Indian Americans, new voting restrictions across the country are eroding these achievements. Tribal nations in Montana have filed a lawsuit against two new laws they have argued disenfranchise their voters. Aaron Bolton had this information in Montana Public Radio. Here is an excerpt:
Several Montana tribal nations and legal nonprofits on Monday filed a lawsuit challenging two new laws they say disenfranchise American Indian voters.
The American Indian Rights Fund and the ACLU of Montana filled the case in the Yellowstone County district court on behalf of the Blackfeet Nation, the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, Fort Belknap Indian Community, the Northern Cheyenne Tribe and Western Native Voice.
