There have been no headlines in Kansas charging that people voted fraudulently and stole the Nov. 2 elections. Even so, Kansas soon will have laws requiring proof of citizenship to register to vote and a photo ID at the polls. Secretary of State-elect Kris Kobach has said he viewed his election as a mandate to combat election fraud, including by having measures ready for the 2011 Legislature. Gov.-elect Sam Brownback and many members of the GOP-controlled Legislature strongly support Kobach's priorities. So do large majorities of Kansans, judging from a recent SurveyUSA poll sponsored by KWCH, Channel 12. In the survey, only 10 percent said voter registration shouldn't require proof of citizenship and only 13 percent said voters shouldn't be required to provide a valid photo ID at the polls. When it comes to implementing such legislation, though, two even smaller numbers become key — the 11 percent who said they didn't have a copy of a birth certificate and the 1 percent who said they lacked a valid photo ID. Kobach, Brownback and lawmakers must ensure that their efforts to fight the perceived threat of voter fraud don't disenfranchise eligible voters.
