Kansas Has No Plans To Change Voter Registration Requirements

KSCB News - June 29, 2015 3:31 pm

Kansans who registered to vote using a federal form without providing citizenship documentation will still not be able to vote in state elections despite the latest U.S. Supreme Court action.

The justices on Monday rejected an appeal from Republican officials in Kansas and Arizona who have sought to have federal elections officials enforce state laws requiring new voters to submit a birth certificate, passport or other papers documenting U.S. citizenship.

But Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says the state will continue its dual election system that limits people who register with the federal form to voting only in federal elections, unless they provide proof of citizenship.

He says Kansas will ask the new commissioners to the U.S. Election Assistance Commission consider changing the federal form to add the requirement.
