Topeka A task force created by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach is meeting next week to continue drafting regulations for administering the state's new voter identification law.
The task force of 17 county officials plans to convene Wednesday in Topeka.
The new law will require voters to show photo identification at the polls beginning in January 2012. Kobach has said he hopes to have regulations drafted by this fall.
The same law also says that, starting in 2013, people registering to vote for the first time in Kansas must provide proof of U.S. citizenship.
Kobach championed both policies, but he's noted that the law doesn't cover all contingencies, such as what to do when voters don't resemble their photo ID.
The regulations will help guide elections officials in such cases.
