Kansas Secretary of State http://kcur.org en ACLU Ready to File Lawsuit Over Kan. Voter Registration Law http://kcur.org/post/aclu-ready-file-lawsuit-over-kan-voter-registration-law <p>The American Civil Liberties Union says in a letter that it's ready to go to court over a voter registration law in Kansas.</p><p>The law requires people registering to vote for the first time in Kansas to prove their citizenship with a document such as a birth certificate. More than 12,000 voter registration applications have been put on hold because of that requirement.</p><p>Doug Bonney is with the ACLU of Kansas and Western Missouri. He says the law, which was strongly championed by Secretary of State Kris Kobach, puts unnecessary hurdles in front of voters.</p> Tue, 13 Aug 2013 20:43:37 +0000 Stephen Koranda 41909 at http://kcur.org
