Kansas to ask Supreme Court to save voter citizenship law

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas' Republican attorney general plans to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to allow the state to require new voters to provide papers documenting their citizenship when registering.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt announced Tuesday that he will appeal a 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals decision in April that said the state could not enforce a proof-of-citizenship law. An appeals-court panel said the law violated the U.S. Constitution's guarantee of equal legal protection as well as a federal voter registration law.

Democratic Gov. Laura Kelly decried Schmidt's decision, saying he was supporting voter suppression and suggested that he is ignoring nationwide protests over George Floyd's death after being detained by police in Minnesota.

“While leaders across the country are urging demonstrators to direct their hurt, anger, and grievances towards the voting booth, the attorney general is fighting to take away the most powerful non-violent tool that our democracy provides, and disenfranchise thousands of fellow Kansans," Kelly said in a statement.

2. He wants people to have to buy photo ID..

anyone that doesn't have a license, will need to purchase a state I.D. I didn't get my license till I was 23, because I didn't need one, so I would not have been able to vote. I don't know how much the state ID would cost, but getting one would probably require jumping through some hoops, and it will be an expense. Anything, and everything to prevent the 'have-nothings'' from voting

6. America could make it easy on itself

Pass a law saying that every citizen is automatically eligible to vote, and send every one of them a card that says so two months before every election, so they can rectify errors or outdated information in time. That's what Germany does, and it works 99% of the time (I know--my wife was one of the 1%).
