Group asks state Supreme Court to keep measure off ballot

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A group opposed to a proposed constitutional amendment meant to reform voting redistricting rules in North Dakota is asking the state Supreme Court to keep the measure off the ballot.

The Brighter Future Alliance says in its petition filed Wednesday that sponsors of the measure failed to provide a full text of the measure while they were gathering signatures. The opposing group says that requirement was established by a Supreme Court ruling in in 1924. Carol Sawicki is chairwoman of North Dakota Voters First, which gathered the signatures.

She says the lawsuit is a waste of taxpayer dollars and opponents should let the people vote.
