Kansas to Limit Voting to Federal Races For Some

KSAL StaffJune 10, 2014

The top election official in Kansas says voters who registered using a federal form without providing proof of citizenship will be given provisional ballots when they vote in the Aug. 5 primary elections.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach told The Associated Press on Tuesday that while the provisional ballots will show all primary races, only votes cast for federal offices will be counted.

Kobach says fewer than 100 Kansas voters who used the federal form to register to vote will be affected.

A federal appeals court will hear arguments Aug. 25 in a lawsuit attempting to force the federal government to help Kansas and Arizona enforce proof-of-citizenship requirements for voters. That hearing will take place after the Kansas primaries.
