TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A Democratic candidate for secretary of state is preparing to outline her plan to fix what she calls the broken Kansas voter registration system.
Jean Schodorf provided no details ahead of a news conference scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.
Schodorf has criticized Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach because voter registrations of nearly 19,000 Kansas residents are on hold for failing to meet a proof-of-citizenship requirement Kobach championed.
Schodorf is a former state senator from Wichita who switched parties to run for secretary of state. As a Republican legislator, she voted for the proof-of-citizenship requirement and another requiring all voters to show photo identification at the polls. But she contends the laws aren't working as Kobach said they would.
Kobach contends the policies are preventing election fraud.
