A new study says thousands of potential voters in Kansas could encounter trouble getting required government-issued photo identification.

The study from the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law says voters in Kansas and nine other states with "unprecedented restrictive voter ID laws" will have trouble getting required identification because they don't have access to a vehicle and live more than 10 miles from an office that issues state IDs and is open more than two days a week.

The Lawrence Journal World reported (http://bit.ly/NDPCWA ) the report also said that downtown Wichita has only one office to serve 160,700 eligible voters, which is eight times the customer base of an average office statewide.
