Dual Voting in Kansas: One Person

WICHITA - One voter.

That's the total number of Kansans who registered using the federal voter form without proof of citizenship and actually cast a ballot in the Aug. 5 primaries under a dual election system.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Tuesday that of the 180 Kansans who used the federal registration form without providing documentation, only one of them voted - in Johnson County. Under the state's dual system, only their votes cast in the federal races would be counted.

Kobach's office is still calculating how many of the more than 18,000 people whose state registrations are on hold voted in the primary using provisional ballots, but Kobach says it appears to be only a handful tried voting. All of their provisional votes would have been discarded.

I Agree
Voter suppression does appear to be working. Only 1 of the "undesirables" went through all the added on hassle to cast a vote.
