NATIONAL – ACLU to challenge Kansas voting law


All citizens in Kansas who register to vote are required to present documentary proof of citizenship. According to a suit filed by the ACLU, this measure is in violation of federal law. The complaint was filed by the ACLU at the U.S. District Court in Kansas City, and it claims that based in a provision in the New Voter Registration Act, states are required to provide voter registration in conjunction with drivers’ license applications at state motor vehicle offices. Dale Ho, the director of the ACLU’s voting rights project stated, “These shameful actions have made Kansas an epicenter of voter suppression.”
