Kansas to Use Provisional Ballots for Upcoming Elections

By ROXANA HEGEMAN, ASSOCIATED PRESS WICHITA, Kan. Jun 22, 2016, 7:53 PM ET

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is planning to use provisional ballots during the upcoming elections and then throw out all of the votes for state and local races cast by the thousands of voters who register to vote at motor vehicle offices without providing proof of citizenship.

An email sent from Kobach's office to county election officials outlines the state's proposed plans for implementing a two-tiered election system in the wake of a federal court order requiring Kansas to allow these voters to cast ballots at least in the federal races.

The email sent by Election Director Bryan Caskey tells local election officials that the secretary of state has not approved a shorter "federal only" ballot.

Instead, Kobach wants to institute a "partial provisional" process that allows election officials to go back into those provisional ballots and throw out any votes cast in state and local races and count only votes cast for president and U.S. Senate and House.

2. Looks like Kansas has bled out.

So not everyone has to prove citizenship?
