A state board is meeting to consider proposed temporary rules and regulation changes to the Kansas law regarding proof of citizenship for newly registered voters.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is proposing the rules Tuesday in response to a glitch that caused delays to some 11,000 voter registration applications. Kansas started requiring that new applications to register to vote in the state also include proof of citizenship.
Gov. Sam Brownback has decided that he won't disclose the applicants for the Kansas Court of Appeals, after all. Gov. Brownback says it would prevent some qualified candidates from coming forward. The window for applying doesn't close until July 31.
Brownback says potential candidates told him they preferred that their names remain confidential.
