Some legislators continue to push proposals that would limit the average citizen’s right to vote. First they blindly follow Secretary of State Kris Kobach to require formal proof of citizenship for first-time voters. Then they want to move off-year elections of school board members and City Council members and mayors to the same time and year as state and federal elections, adding the opportunity for these races to become a mess of partisan bickering and ignore real issues facing local communities. Now they want to limit the voting pool before a primary by refusing to allow people to change their party identification within two months before the vote.
