Kansas and Arizona unite in lawsuit over voter registration laws

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach seeks to bring the state laws into compliance with a ruling the U.S. Supreme Court handed down in June. The lawsuit came a week after the American Civil Liberties Union signaled plans to challenge the Kansas requirement. If successful, Kobach could potentially cut off the ACLU litigation over the law that forces prospective voters to prove their citizenship with documents such as a birth certificate or passport before they can vote.
