At this hour, a field hearing on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation is underway on voting rights issues, particularly in North Dakota and South Dakota.

North Dakota adopted new voter identification requirements that were challenged by various Native American groups.

Two lawsuits were filed before the November 2018 general election to stop enforcement of ID laws requiring, among other things, proof of a street address.

The challenges to stop enforcement of the laws before the election went to the U.S. Supreme Court twice. In both cases, the high court refused the requests.

Challenges have also been filed against South Dakota voter ID requirements.

A subcommittee of the U.S. House Committee on Elections is hearing testimony at Fort Yates at the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council, Building #1.
