10:47 p.m. update
Topeka - A professor who helped write Arizona's new immigration law has been elected Kansas secretary of state.
Republican Kris Kobach (KOH'-bahk) defeated Democratic incumbent Chris Biggs in Tuesday's election.
Kobach had made combatting election fraud his major issue. He advocates requiring voters to show a photo ID at the polls. The secretary of state is Kansas' top elections official.
But some voters supported Kobach because as a law professor, he's advised cities and states, including Arizona, about cracking down on illegal immigration.
Biggs was appointed secretary of state in March to fill a vacancy.
