Standing Rock Sioux tribe addresses voter ID law

STANDING ROCK, N.D. - The Standing Rock Sioux tribe says thousands of Native Americans will not be able to vote in November because of an upheld voter ID law.

It requires voters have a physical address, rather than just a P.O. box.

Tribal chairman Mike Faith said, “Native Americans can live on the reservation without an address. They're living in accordance with the law and treaties, but now all of a sudden they cant vote. This law clearly discriminates against Native Americans in North Dakota."
