The Native American Rights Fund and other organizations filed a legal challenge against the state for discounting ballots in a way that disproportionately affects Alaska Native voters. The Mississippi Supreme Court upheld voter restrictions in the state constitution originally instituted by white supremacists specifically to limit participation by people of color. Today on Native America Calling, Shawn Spruce gets a rundown of the evolving landscape of voter restrictions that affect Native Americans with Megan Condon, staff attorney with the Native American Rights Fund; O.J. Semans Sr. (Rosebud Sioux), co-executive director of Four Directions Vote; and Nicole Donaghy (Hunkpapa Lakota), executive director of North Dakota Native Vote.
