SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A Woodbury County supervisor has agreed not to attend a meeting Tuesday due to a dispute over where he is registered to vote.

Supervisor Jeremy Taylor said he would not attend the weekly Board of Supervisors meeting after a decision by the county auditor over which of his two homes he could use for voter registration purposes, according to the Sioux City Journal.

Sioux City resident Maria Rundquist had filed a legal challenge over Taylor’s use of a home as a primary residence in the city’s District 2 when he and his wife also spent time at another home in another district.

County Auditor Pat Gill on Friday released a ruling that found Taylor couldn’t use the District 2 home for voting purposes. On Monday, Gill said Taylor was informed he couldn’t represent the district barring a court order reinstating his voter registration.

Taylor, a Republican who is running for Congress, said he’d abide by the decision but was considering legal remedies. He also accused Gill, a Democrat, of being “politically motivated,” in his decision, and “singlehandedly overturning an election.”
