Navajo Seal 2An Albuquerque television station…KOB Channel 4…..reports the Navajo Election Board Commissioner said Tuesday afternoon that the elections board will go to jail rather than take Chris Deschene’s name off the Presidential ballot.

Wallace Charley told the TV station that the board is serious about this and they are prepared to go to jail rather than remove Mr. Deschene’s name. Mr. Charley said they will act in opposition to the Navajo Supreme Court’s ruling to take the name of the Page HS graduate off the ballot.

Charley said, “The Navajo are citizens of the United States; there is a constitution that gives the principle that people have a right to vote, and their votes cannot be denied.”

He added that he and the elections board will not back-off on this principle. “We’ll go to jail and see what comes out of this,” said the commissioner.
