Do high school IDs work for voting?

With only six weeks left before the November elections, there is still confusion about what voter IDs are acceptable in Kansas. Brad Bryant, deputy assistant secretary of state, said he thinks that high school IDs would be allowable, but election officials in several counties don't think they are, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. There is also uncertainty about whether only public school IDs would be acceptable, or whether a private school ID would count, too. Meanwhile, the civil rights group Advancement Project issued a report Monday estimating that as many as 10 million Hispanic U.S. citizens may be deterred from registering and voting because of new voting laws. Mission accomplished?
