TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas judge has cleared the way for Secretary of State Kris Kobach to use a dual voting system to enforce the state's proof-of-citizenship for new voters.
Shawnee County District Judge Franklin Theis on Friday denied the American Civil Liberties Union's request for a preliminary injunction to stop Kobach from implementing a new policy.
Under that policy, Kansans who used a national form to register without providing proof of citizenship will be able to complete full ballots in the Aug. 5 primary _ but only their votes in U.S. House and Senate will be counted.
Voters who registered using the Kansas state form without providing proof of citizenship will have none of their ballots counted.
The national registration form does not require documentation of citizenship.
