Meanwhile, U.S. Sen. Mark Begich has introduced a bill that would require the translations, and other measures he says are needed to ensure equal access to polls. The Native Voting Rights bill would also require federal pre-clearance on decisions about polling places and early voting.</p> Fri, 06 Jun 2014 03:19:59 +0000 Joaqlin Estus 12067 at http://knba.org
