Judge orders all votes by federal registrants to be counted in Kansas primary
by Tim Carpenter, Topeka Capital-Journal, 7-29-2016
A Shawnee County District Court judge Friday ordered the counting of all primary election votes cast by Kansans who registered with a federal form that doesn't require proof of citizenship and conflicts with the state's registration process.
Judge Larry Hendricks rejected arguments presented by Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who led establishment of temporary statewide rules requiring county election officials to disregard votes cast in local and state elections by at least 17,500 federal registrants that he had placed in registration limbo due to the citizenship conflict.
