Voting issue going to the courts

Election Day

KIMT News 3- A California court case could have an impact on voting rights.

Those in the case believe that voters out west were turned away because of their developmental disabilities. Some, even had to take a literacy test in order to vote. Minnesota officials say this would not happen in their state, but someone with disabilities could be turned away under certain legal circumstances. “If there was a court appointed guardian, and it was documented by a court order, that said the person is not competent to vote, or ineligible to vote could happen.” Mark Krupski, Director of Property Records and Licensing in Olmsted County said.
