Kansas Agency Adjusts to Voter Citizenship Rule

KSAL StaffSeptember 16, 2013

The Kansas Department of Revenue has made changes at its driver’s licenses offices because of the state’s proof-of-citizenship requirement for new voters.

Secretary Nick Jordan said Monday the agency is now providing additional printed information to people who register to vote at driver’s licenses offices if they don’t produce a birth certificate or passport or other papers. The information tells them that they must do so to be registered.

Federal law requires states to allow prospective voters to register at driver’s license offices, and thousands of Kansans do.

In another change coming by early October, Jordan said that if people bring in citizenship papers but don’t need them to renew a driver’s license, the offices will accept them anyway for voter registration purposes.
