A bit of breaking news kicked off a voter registration training event Monday evening at the Bass Community Building.
News came that a federal judge ruled Kansas cannot require proof of U.S. citizenship to vote, Cille King, co-president of the Kansas League of Women Voters, told a crowd of about 15. The lawsuit is one of two filed by the League and others against current Kansas voting restrictions implemented by Secretary of State Kris Kobach requiring proof of citizenship.
Even so, the League encourages voters to fill out a federal voter registration form rather than a state form in case the law changes. Kobach has said he will challenge the judges ruling.
