Kobach Seeks More Authority On Election Fraud Cases

(AP) – Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is pushing bills to give himself prosecutorial power, to bring back straight-ticket voting and make death the only excuse for withdrawing a candidate’s name from a ballot.

Kobach told the House Elections Committee on Wednesday that double voting is happening with some frequency in Kansas and surrounding states, and that the only way to address it is by deterrence.

When asked about the roughly 25,000 people who remain in voter limbo, he said they are able to vote because they can use smartphones to send in their birth certificates to prove their citizenship.

He says straight-party voting would cut down on the number of people who come to the polls, vote in the major races and leave the rest of the ballot blank.
