Navajo Nation president on Arizona's new voting restrictions: An 'assault' on our rights Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez said that Arizona’s new voting restrictions are an “assault” on the tribe’s voting rights. Nez’s comments come after Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) this month signed into law several GOP-led bills aimed at election reforms. Most notably was Senate Bill 1485, which reforms the state’s permanent early voting list into an active early voting list. People would be removed from the list after they don’t participate in two prior general election cycles. ADVERTISEMENT “This is an assault to the election process for people of color throughout this country,” Nez told The Associated Press. “Here in Arizona, it’s pushing back on the voters of tribal communities, and we came out in big numbers to vote our candidate of choice, which is President Biden.”
