#5 California Officials Sue Huntington Beach Over Voter ID Law Passed at Polls - Amy Taxin for AP News

California officials on Monday sued Huntington Beach over a new law that lets the city require voters to provide identification to cast ballots at the polls starting in 2026. State Attorney General Rob Bonta said the measure approved by voters in the Southern California city of nearly 200,000 people stands in conflict with state law and could make it harder for poor, non-white, young, elderly, and disabled voters to cast ballots. State officials previously warned that the measure to amend the city’s charter would suppress voter participation and are asking a court to block it from taking effect, he said.

Young in contempt of her court orders to fix the way the state investigates complaints by children in its care.
