A federal trial has been scheduled in a lawsuit challenging a new state law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls.
U.S. Magistrate Gerald Rushfelt in Kansas City set a schedule this week for hearing the lawsuit.
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is being sued by northeast Kansas residents Arthur Spry and Charles Hamner.
Both live in a retirement home in Overbrook.
The suit says neither man had a driver’s license, computer or access to the birth records needed to secure a photo ID.
