Kansas Board Rejects Voter Registration Fix
07/16/2013

 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A state board has rejected proposed temporary changes to the Kansas law requiring proof of citizenship for newly registered voters.

 

The change proposed Tuesday by Secretary of State Kris Kobach was in response to a glitch that caused delays to nearly 12,000 voter registration applications. Kansas now requires that new applications to register to vote also include proof of citizenship.

 

A new state computer system that was supposed to provide that verification to the secretary of state's office hasn't started sending the information to election officials.

 

The rule change would have allowed those individuals to cast a provisional vote in the next election and then bring proof of citizenship to election officials before the votes are certified.
