Hildale, Utah, Known For FLDS Church, Braces For Potentially Historic Election
Hildale, Utah, is a tiny city across the border from Colorado City, Arizona. And the area is home to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, or FLDS.
The city of Hildale was found guilty of religious discrimination in a federal court case last year.
Tuesday is the town’s first city council election since the verdict, and for the first time, non-church members could win these seats.
Additionally, the city could elect its first mayor who is a woman.
