The Sprit Lake Sioux tribe in Northern North Dakota has sued the state over voter identification needs ahead of Tuesday’s midterm election. 


According to the North Dakota Secretary of State, Alvin Jaeger, voters must have an ID to vote which includes a provable street address.  On the reservation, the post office does not provide street addresses, instead giving most Native Americans P.O. Boxes. 


The tribe is looking to make the provable street address requirement unconsititutional.
