Kobach Ordered to Tell Voters their Fall Ballots Will Count

Associated Press - September 28, 2016 12:14 pm

A Kansas judge has ordered Secretary of State Kris Kobach to notify thousands of people who hadn’t provided documents proving their citizenship that they will be allowed to vote for all offices in the November election.

Shawnee County District Judge Larry Hendricks’ order affects more than 19,545 voters who registered at motor vehicle offices or with a federal form without providing documentary proof of U.S. citizenship.
The judge stopped short of issuing the permanent injunction sought by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Kobach’s office says it is reviewing the ruling.
Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s voting rights project, says all the litigation has freed about half of voter registrants in Kansas from unnecessary bureaucratic hoops.

The first mistake is to allow would be voters to register at motor vehicle offices.
The second mistake is that those employees were probably not informed of procedure or even trained.
The motor vehicle offices employees have enough to do without taking on voter registration duties.
Come on Kobach.. get the process organized in the department its supposed to be in.

It is disgusting of what Kobot, and his cronies will do to bar a human the right to vote, yes Kansas is back in the 1800’s once again. Since Brownstain took office the corruption has not stopped. Oh and did I mention they have taken Kansas down, and destroyed it.
