TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Secretary of State Kris Kobach's opponent in the Republican primary predicts that a "dual" voting system for helping Kansas enforce a proof-of-citizenship rule will confuse voters and suppress turnout.

Challenger Scott Morgan's criticism of the Kobach-designed system Tuesday came a day after the secretary of state's office began mailing notices to dozens of voters about it. The voters registered using a national form without providing proof of their U.S. citizenship to election officials.

Kobach advised counties last month to set aside such voters' ballots and count only their votes in congressional races in the Aug. 5 election.

Morgan called the policy baffling.

But Kobach dismissed the criticism, saying maybe Morgan is confused.

Most Kansas residents use a state registration form requiring them to produce citizenship papers for election officials.
