In Kansas, Secretary of State Kris Kobach is following a trend across the country to make it harder for citizens to vote.
According to Yahoo New;
“Since January 2011, 13 states have passed more restrictive laws regarding government-issued photo identification requirements for voting, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, a voting rights advocacy organization that is fighting back against voter ID laws.”
Kobach is trying to move the date for these election rule changes up to June from January. It is obvious that he wants to disenfranchise as many people from voting against the Republicans as possible before the November election.
There is plenty of evidence that proves that many people will be kept from the polls. Citizens who were not born here may not have a birth certificate.
Again from the Yahoo News;
“Voting rights advocates also point out that these new laws in Texas supplant previously accepted forms of ID, such as student IDs and voter registration certificates. The NAACP argues that this shift will disenfranchise hundreds of thousands of Hispanic voters in places like Texas, who lack the money, transportation or documentation to obtain accepted identification. Other demographics are similarly challenged: In the South, many elderly African-Americans do not have valid birth certificates because laws at the time of their birth forbid them to be born in hospitals. This makes securing state-issued photo IDs difficult if not impossible.”
The organization KanVote has already determined that Kobach’s calendar states that he was to be at home with his wife prior to the induced delivery of their child, yet he was actually in New Orleans, testifying on behalf of the anti-immigrant ordinance he wrote for Farmers Branch, Texas, according to Otto’s War Room.
Opponents of the ID requirement are calling his latest attempt at moving the date of this up a "gut and go." It is a maneuver to sneak controversial laws through legislation.
While Kobach keeps droning on an on about voter fraud, which has already proven to be minimal, it becomes obvious that he is really out to make sure enough poor, immigrant and elderly voters are kept off the rolls to ensure a republican victory this fall.
