TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ A new study says thousands of potential voters in Kansas could encounter trouble getting required government-issued photo identification.

The study from the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law says voters in Kansas and nine other states with ``unprecedented restrictive voter ID laws'' will have trouble getting required identification because they don't have access to a vehicle and live more than 10 miles from an office that issues state IDs and is open more than two days a week.

The Lawrence Journal World reported (http://bit.ly/NDPCWA ) the report also said that downtown Wichita has only one office to serve 160,700 eligible voters, which is eight times the customer base of an average office statewide.
