Voter Fraud Task Force To Meet

KSCB News - July 29, 2011 8:09 am

A task force created by Kansas Secretary of
State Kris Kobach (KOH’-bahk) is meeting next week to continue
drafting regulations for administering the state’s new voter
identification law.
The task force of 17 county officials plans to convene Wednesday
in Topeka.
The new law will require voters to show photo identification at
the polls beginning in January 2012. Kobach has said he hopes to
have regulations drafted by this fall.
The same law also says that, starting in 2013, people
registering to vote for the first time in Kansas must provide proof
of U.S. citizenship.
Kobach championed both policies, but he’s noted that the law
doesn’t cover all contingencies, such as what to do when voters
don’t resemble their photo ID.
The regulations will help guide elections officials in such
cases.
