TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Two elderly men from Overbrook have filed a lawsuit challenging the state's voter ID law.
The lawsuit, which names Secretary of State Kris Kobach as the only defendant, states Arthur Spry and Charles Hamner did not have the proper identity card to prove they were Kansans, and voted provisional ballots in November's election. Their ballots were not counted.
According to the lawsuit, the men live in a retirement home, and they do not have driver's licenses or computer access to get an ID from the state.
Spry and Hamner are seeking $5,000 in damages because their votes were not given equal weight to their peers' votes.
