WICHITA, Kan. — The American Civil Liberties Union is asking a judge to enforce her earlier order requiring Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach to put on voter rolls people who registered at motor vehicle offices without providing citizenship documents.
In a filing Friday, the group also requested that U.S. District Judge Julie Robinson issue an order for Kobach to show cause why he should not be held in contempt.
Kobach says the state “is in full compliance with the district court’s order.”
The ACLU contends Kobach has not registered in the official poll books these voters for federal elections. Those voters aren’t given a regular ballot, but are instead must use a provisional ballot. The ACLU also argues Kobach violated the order by issuing a confusing and misleading notice to the organization.
