Justice Dept to Monitor Finney County Elections

doj logo_centered

GARDEN CITY, Kan. (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department says its civil rights division will monitor Tuesday's elections in a southwest Kansas county to ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act and other federal laws. The agency said Monday its personnel will observe activities at polling places in Finney County. Voters there will be deciding a sales tax issue. They'll also be electing city commissioners for Garden City, members of the local public school board and trustees of Garden City Community College. The Voting Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on race, color or membership in a minority language group. Finney County has a large Hispanic population. The Justice Department sends out observers every year to watch elections across the country.
