FARGO—In the weeks running up to the Midterm election, a decision from the Supreme Court has left some people scrambling to obtain new documents. One group, in particular, are Native Americans who live on reservations. The Supreme Court upheld North Dakota's Voter ID law. It states that everyone who goes to the polls must show an ID with a current street address. A P.O. Box, for instance, would not be sufficient enough to verify a physical address. Sharon White Bear, who serves on the Native American Commission in Fargo, called the move politically driven.

"As far as preparation, we have maintainers like these that are ready to go and we would just have to put plows on our trucks. They are all ready for the snow season," Houim said.
