Judge: 17,500 suspended voters can cast ballots in all races Tuesday

A Shawnee County judge has ruled that 17,500 voters can participate in state and local races as well as federal ones in Tuesday’s Kansas primary election. The state had approved a rule saying people could vote only in federal elections – not state and local ones – if they registered at DMV offices but failed to provide proof of citizenship as required by Kansas law.

Court case could open Kansas primary elections to thousands of new voters

A Shawnee County judge will decide whether thousands can vote in state and local elections when Kansas holds its primaries next week. Earlier this month, a state board approved a new rule crafted by Secretary of State Kris Kobach to allow people who registered at DMV offices to vote in federal elections, but not state and local elections. The ACLU is challenging the rule at a court hearing Friday.
