Kansas Board OKs 92-Year-Old’s Voter Registration

KSAL StaffAugust 27, 2014

A Kansas board has approved the voter registration of a 92-year-old woman after she and her daughter presented copies of census records and a page from a battered family Bible to prove she was born in the U.S.

Evelyn Howard of Shawnee went before the State Election Board on Wednesday because she had no birth certificate. Daughter Marilyn Hopkins said she was born in a midwife’s home in Minnesota in February 1922.

Kansas requires new voters to provide a birth certificate or other proof of their citizenship when registering. Howard moved to Kansas from Missouri in 2013 and sought to register as a Republican voter earlier this month.

The three-member board’s decision was unanimous. The page from the family Bible recorded the birth of Howard and two siblings.
