Managers of some Kansas nursing homes say they are concerned that their residents might not have the paperwork required to vote under the state's new voter identification laws.

State election officials are working with the nursing homes to help residents navigate the new system but some managers say they are still waiting for support.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports residents of Westview Manor in Peabody have had their issues solved. But other homes are waiting for the secretary of state or county officials to help their residents comply with new voter ID and proof of citizenship laws.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach says Monday that he's office is instructing county election officers to help nursing homes comply with the law. Kobach says the Peabody home was not given special treatment.
