Kobach Confident In Courts
07/09/2012

Kris Kobach, who is a candidate for Secretary of State in Kansas and is the co-author of the Arizona Immigration Law.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach is confident the courts would uphold a Kansas law that will require some potential voters to prove their U.S. citizenship starting next year.
 
     That's despite an ongoing legal dispute over a similar policy in Arizona.
 
     Kobach contends his state's proof-of-citizenship law is sound because it was drafted to avoid the legal issues facing the Arizona law, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported this week.
 
     The law will require people registering to vote for the first time in Kansas to present proof that they're American citizens to elections officials.
 
     The proof-of-citizenship requirement was included in a package of elections changes approved by legislators in 2011 at Kobach's urging. Another measure in the package, requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls, took effect this year.
