About a dozen Wichita residents and elected officials gathered in Old Town Tuesday afternoon to call attention to what they say are unfair and confusing restrictions on voters in Kansas.

The nonpartisan group held a press event in response to the meeting in New Hampshire of the president’s voter fraud commission, which Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach vice-chairs. Critics have said is working to make voting harder in the U.S.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach's office has filed two new criminal election fraud cases, including one alleging an attempt to vote by a non-citizen.

The three felony counts filed Aug. 17 in Johnson County against Sergio Salgado-Juarez mark the second time Kobach's office has filed charges alleging that a non-citizen voted since being given the power to prosecute election fraud allegations in 2015.

The Presidential Commission on Election Integrity -- which some have taken to calling simply the “Kobach commission” -- holds its first in-person meeting in Washington, D.C., later Wednesday morning.

Civil rights advocates say a Kansas election official is trying to hide materials that undercut his public claim that substantial numbers of noncitizens have registered to vote.

The American Civil Liberties Union obtained the documents as part of its federal civil lawsuit in Kansas challenging the state's proof-of-citizenship document requirement.

The American Civil Liberties Union is fighting back against Secretary of State Kris Kobach's voting rules. This time it has to do with President Trump's recently announced Election Integrity Commission.

The ACLU has sent coordinated Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests to officials in Kansas, Indiana, New Hampshire, Maine, as well as the U.S. Election Assistance Commission. One person from each of these states has been appointed to the Election Integrity Commission, with Kris Kobach as the vice chair.
