Kansas judge to consider blocking state’s two-tiered voting

The judge found only 3 cases (since 1995?) of non-citizens voting have been found. The Kansas SOS has had a year and 3 new attorney hires to find and file charges against illegal voting. He hasn't found any non-citizens to file a lawsuit against.
There is no evidence that non-citizens are voting in any number of consequence.

However, there are multiple reports that this voter suppression is exactly that - voter suppression against the young, the older, the poorer, the handicapped, to reduce the numbers of citizens who might vote for the other party.

Kansas officials certify 75-year-old woman as a voting-eligible citizen after birth certificate lost

"The secretary of state’s office dug up many of the documents that demonstrated French’s citizenship, Kobach said."

http://cjonline.com/news/2016-07-25/k...

The Topeka Capitol Journal online article is more detailed and includes the information that the SOS office "dug up many of the documents that demonstrated French's citizenship".

Why doesn't the SOS office find the documents for the 30,000 other citizens who have not able to finish their voter registration?

Letter to the editor: ‘We like him’

The Green Party is not a recognized party in Kansas. Is Stein running as an independent in Kansas? The Kansas SOS site doesn't have the Presidential candidates yet - at least that I can find. Anyone know the answer?

Are taxes too high here? A look at some numbers and how Lawrence stacks up to other cities

One reason: the business that get tax incentives pay less taxes than another business. It can be an unfair advantage for the new business.

Traffic stop ends with police finding nearly 20 pounds of marijuana, court documents say

The article says that "police" made the stop on Highway 70. Why were the police on the turnpike? Isn't that the highway patrol's territory?

State board limits votes of 17,000 Kansans missing citizenship proof; Kobach-initiated process called 'appalling'

The Kansas Secretary of State will not release the names that applied at the DMV, and thus can vote only in federal elections. However, the state has released (at a price) the full list of those who have not provided their proof of citizenship document (includes those who registered to vote in other ways - in person, on line, by mail, voter drives, etc). The list was over 22,000 in June (it's larger in July) and can be found on the League of Women Voters of Kansas website: LWVK.org. The direct link is: http://www.lwvk.org/PDF/Voter%20Suspe...

The list would be even longer, but the SOS has a regulation that names will be purged after 90 days.
