Kobach Ordered to Tell Voters their Fall Ballots Will Count

KSAL StaffSeptember 28, 2016

A Kansas judge has ordered Secretary of State Kris Kobach to notify thousands of people who hadn’t provided documents proving their citizenship that they will be allowed to vote for all offices in the November election.

Shawnee County District Judge Larry Hendricks’ order affects more than 19,545 voters who registered at motor vehicle offices or with a federal form without providing documentary proof of U.S. citizenship.
The judge stopped short of issuing the permanent injunction sought by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Kobach’s office says it is reviewing the ruling.
Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s voting rights project, says all the litigation has freed about half of voter registrants in Kansas from unnecessary bureaucratic hoops.
