Cimarron Voters Test New I.D.Law

Cimarron voters are the first to put a new law to the test that requires them to provide a valid identification before voting.
The Kansas Legislature passed the measure last session with hopes of preventing voter fraud. Secretary of State Kris Kobach said his office has discovered at least 260 cases of voter fraud in Kansas since 1997.
Cimarron election officials say no one complained and everyone had a valid id when they came to vote.
Voters were deciding on a one-and-a-quarter percent sales tax increase that would pay for a new swimming pool.
