TOPEKA, Kan (AP) Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach faces a lawsuit aimed at blocking him from imposing a new registration policy as he attempts to enforce a proof-of-citizenship law.
The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Shawnee County District Court by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of the gay-rights group Equality Kansas and two prospective voters.
It seeks to prevent Kobach from creating a ``dual'' registration system under which some voters could cast ballots only in federal races.
The different treatment would apply to people using a national registration form, which doesn't require proof of citizenship. People using a Kansas form could vote in any race by providing a birth certificate, passport or other papers.
Kobach has said Kansas could be forced to adopt such a system.
