TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A new law that would allow Kansans to vote at polling stations that are most convenient to them likely will not be ready for this year’s elections, Secretary of State Scott Schwab said.

Schwab told the state Senate’s election committee Tuesday that drafting rules for implementing the law is difficult, in part because of technical issues in the state’s 105 counties, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported.

The program, which was part of a voting reform bill signed last year by Gov. Laura Kelly, won’t be finalized until 2021, Schwab said.
