Federal Appeals Court Tosses Out Navajo Nation Election Lawsuit
spacer image
A lawsuit filed by six Navajo Nation members seeking to ease election restrictions has been dismissed by a federal appeals court. The plaintiffs alleged in the lawsuit that they would face overwhelming difficulty in getting their ballots delivered by Election Day. According to the lawsuit, the mail-in ballot requirement would effectively disenfranchise the reservation's voters because of its geographical isolation and lack of resources. In dismissing the lawsuit, a three-judge panel ruled that the plaintiffs' allegations were overly speculative and that extending the deadline would not resolve the issue.
