NAACP sues over Lake County precinct consolidation law

The Gary NAACP wants a federal judge to block a new law that would consolidate Lake County’s voting precincts.

The organization claims the law, formerly known as SB 220, would discriminate against the black and Latino populations in Lake County by making voting access more inconvenient.

Defendants are Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson and individual members of the Indiana Election Division.

Gov. Eric Holcomb’s office declined to comment on the lawsuit.
