Kan. Dems Want to Re-examine Voting Laws

KSAL StaffJuly 31, 2013

Some Wichita Democrats want Kansas legislators to use the special session in September to fix a problem they say exists in the state’s new voting laws.

Currently, more than 12,000 voter registration applications are in suspense because individuals lacked proof of citizenship when they registered to vote through the state Division of Vehicles.

The Wichita Eagle reports that Democrats want to fix the problem when legislators meet starting Sept. 3. The special session was called to rewrite the state’s Hard 50 prison law in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach and Republicans in the Legislature say any discussion on the voting laws is unlikely to happen, given the desire to keep the session focused on the sentencing law.
