Nonresident voting in 1 Kansas county scrutinized at trial

March 08, 2018 - 2:57 PM

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Testimony in the third day of trial that could determine if thousands of Kansans will be allowed to vote centred on a list of questionable voter registrations in one county and discussion of the state's voting regulations.

The American Civil Liberties Union is challenging a 2013 law that requires documents proving citizenship when registering.

Sedgwick County Elections Commissioner Tabitha Lehman was questioned Thursday about a list of 38 people that she reported to Kobach as being noncitizens who either registered or tried to register to vote in her county.

Lehman acknowledged only five of those on the list compiled since 2004 tried to vote. But she contended the law prevented 15 people from registering who would have been eligible before the law was passed.
