A Lawrence man is asking the Kansas Supreme Court to order a grand jury investigation into how Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office handled online voter registrations. KPR’s Stephen Koranda reports.

Steven Davis says he’s heard rumors that some Kansas voter registration applications submitted online didn’t make it to county election offices, meaning some people weren’t being registered to vote. He collected signatures under a Kansas law that allows citizens to call for a grand jury with a petition.

Judges in Douglas County threw out his request two weeks ago, saying the allegations weren’t specific enough. Davis is now asking the Kansas Supreme Court to order a grand jury to study if there’s evidence of any wrongdoing.

Kobach’s office has said any allegations that they mishandled voter registrations are “nonsense.”
