​Kobach: Effort Underway to Identify Voters Affected by Order

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says county election offices are sorting through thousands of records to identify voters affected by a recent federal court order. The Wichita Eagle ( ) reports that the effort stems from last week's ruling blocking Kansas and two other states from requiring proof of citizenship from people who register to vote using the federal form. Kobach says the state's voter database does not differentiate between people who register with the federal form and the state form. That means local election officers will have to physically go through paper records of people who tried to register since January to determine which voters were affected by the ruling. Kobach estimates that the number of people affected would be between 200 and 400 statewide.
