Judge Reiterates Kansas AG Kobach Unable to Encumber Voting

KSAL StaffJune 18, 2016

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) – A Kansas judge is standing by his earlier ruling that Secretary of State Kris Kobach has no legal right to bar people who register to vote using a federal form from voting in local and state elections.

This week, Shawnee County District Judge Franklin Theis (Tice) rejected Kobach’s request to reconsider his January decision, which came after the executive director of the U.S. Election Assistance

Commission required proof-of-citizenship on the national voter registration form in Kansas, Georgia and Alabama.

The court previously said the right to vote under Kansas law is not tied to the method of registration.
It is unclear what impact the ruling will have on Kobach’s instructions this week to allow thousands of people who register at motor vehicle offices without citizenship documents to vote only in federal races.
