Two Kansas men challenge voter ID law

Arthur Spry and Charles Hamner, who live in a retirement home about 20 miles southeast of Topeka, say in the lawsuit that they had to cast provisional ballots in the 2012 state and federal election because they couldn’t find their birth certificates and didn’t have state-issued photo IDs, which are required by law to vote. When they couldn’t provide adequate ID after voting provisionally, their votes were thrown out, according to the lawsuit.
