Board To Consider Voting Fix

KSAL StaffJuly 16, 2013

A state board is meeting to consider proposed temporary rules and regulation changes to the Kansas law regarding proof of citizenship requirements for newly registered Kansas voters.

The rules are being proposed Tuesday by Secretary of State Kris Kobach in response to a glitch that has caused delays to some 11,000 voter registration applications. Kansas started requiring that new applications to register to vote in the state also include proof of citizenship.

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

The rule change would allow 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.
