Kobach Sued Over Proof-of-Citizenship Requirement

AP) – Two Kansas residents have filed a federal lawsuit challenging the state’s proof-of-citizenship requirement for new voters and plans to remove people who haven’t complied from voter registration rolls.
The two residents of Douglas County in northeast Kansas filed the lawsuit Wednesday against Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
Kobach is the architect of a law requiring people registering for the first time in Kansas to document their U.S. citizenship.
He enacted a regulation requiring county election officials to purge voter rolls of registrations incomplete for more than 90 days. It takes effect Friday.
Prospective voters Alder Cromwell and Cody Keener sought to register months ago but haven’t met the proof-of-citizenship requirement.
They’re seeking a court order to block the purge and the proof-of-citizenship requirement.
Kobach’s office had yet to review it.
