​Kansas, Arizona Seek Rehearing in Voter Citizenship Lawsuit

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas and Arizona have asked an appeals court for a rehearing of its ruling that their residents can register to vote using a federal form without having proof of citizenship. A petition filed late Monday contends the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals overlooked certain issues when it sided against the states in November. The federal appeals court ruled that Kansas and Arizona cannot demand federal election officials to help them enforce state laws requiring new voters to submit a birth certificate, passport or other papers documenting U.S. citizenship. The court overturned an order from a federal judge in Kansas that had required the U.S. Election Assistance Commission to modify its form to require those documents.
