Saskatchewan to allow use of First Nations forms for election

The Saskatchewan government has decided to accept First Nations forms as proof of residence for next month's election.

Justice Minister Don Morgan at first said the attestation forms wouldn't be allowed for members of First Nations. Yet people who lived in care homes and student residences would still be able to use them.

The form has to be signed by a First Nations chief and band members will have to present a second form of identification at the polls.
