Secretary of State Kobach Tells Kansas Counties to Comply with Court Ruling

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Secretary of State's office has issued written instructions to county elections officials telling them to immediately implement a federal court ruling that struck down the state's proof-of-citizenship voter registration law. The state's two-page directive was emailed Wednesday to local officials. A federal judge found the Kansas law unconstitutional late Monday. Elections Director Bryan Caskey says he told the counties the following morning that the Secretary of State's office was going to comply with the entirety of the ruling but that it would take a "little bit" to issue written instructions and not to change anything until then. The American Civil Liberties Union says there are some compliance problems in those instructions, but they do not appear to be anything that needs to be addressed on an emergency basis.
