Kansas Official Strikes Deal as Contempt Hearing Looms

KSAL StaffSeptember 29, 2016

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has struck a deal with the American Civil Liberties Union that he hopes will help him avoid a contempt finding.

The deal would allow people who registered at motor vehicle offices or with a federal form without providing citizenship documents to vote in the November election with a traditional secret ballot, rather than be forced to use a provisional one.

Kobach has also agreed to send notices to at least 20,000 affected voters telling them they are registered and qualified to vote.

It is unclear whether the deal will be enough for U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson to call off Friday’s contempt hearing in a lawsuit brought by the ACLU over the state’s voter identification law.
