The Justice Department announced today that it will monitor the election on Oct. 3 in certain jurisdictions in the state of Alaska to ensure compliance with the minority language accessibility requirements of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. On election day, the Civil Rights Division will be monitoring in the following jurisdictions: Dillingham Census Area, Kusilvak Census Area and North Slope Borough, Alaska.
