A federal high court recently ruled that individuals do not need to show proof of citizenship in order to register to vote. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach plans to appeal. An article by High Plains Public Radio laid out the repercussions of this decision and consulted KU Law professor Lumen Mulligan.
In January, one of six men vying for Kobach’s job will take office and replace him as defendant. Since the appeal likely won’t be done, that person will have the power to continue or kill it.
