The City of Huntington Beach in Southern California passed a new election integrity law. Voters agree to be required to present voter identification to vote starting in 2026. The law would also allow the city to facilitate 20 more in-person polling locations and the monitoring of ballot drop boxes. But state officials are suing the city, claiming it’ll make it harder for minority groups to vote.

NTD’s David Lam spoke with city attorney Michael Gates of Huntington Beach to discuss this issue.
