Navajo Board of Elections in contempt of court; Nov. 4 elections to go forward except presidential election; Deschene off ballot

The Navajo Nation Supreme Court ruled the Navajo Election Board of Supervisors were in contempt of court Friday in Chinle for not adhering to its demands to postpone the Nov. 4 election and remove Chris Deschene from the ballot. At the adherence of Executive Director of the Navajo Election Administration Edison Wauneka, who was not held in contempt, the court determined that the Nov. 4 elections will go forth as planned except the presidential election, which will be held in a special election at a later date.
