Kobach Wants To Prosecute Election Fraud

KSCB News - January 18, 2011 3:28 pm

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach wants legislators to give his office new power to prosecute election fraud and to increase the penalties for violating election laws.

Kobach outlined his proposed Safe and Fair Elections Act during a news conference Tuesday.

His bill would also require all voters to show photo identification at the polls, and proof of citizenship from anyone registering to vote in Kansas for the first time.

The Republican secretary of state says his goal is to give Kansas the toughest laws on election fraud of any state.

Kobach has long promised to pursue laws on photo ID and proof of citizenship.
