Secretary Kobach (pictured) was largely responsible for the recent passage of the Secure And Fair Elections (SAFE) Act in Kansas. The Act makes proof of American citizenship a requirement for voting in Kansas. I would think that would be a no-brainer, but the law is actually quite controversial, decried by those on the extreme left of the political spectrum as disenfranchising and even racist.
Interestingly, some 19,000 possible Kansas voters have failed to comply with the simple requirements of the Act and will be unable to vote in Kansas until they do. Compliance is easy--just bring a valid ID when you vote in person, or mail in a copy of it when you vote absentee. If you don't have a valid ID, Kansas will provide one for free. The elderly are even allowed to use expired documents.
Voters already registered do NOT have to re-register. New voters must supply proof of American citizenship when registering for the first time. Eight easy-to-obtain forms of ID satisfy this requirement. The vast, vast majority of citizens already have one or more of these forms of ID, but for the rare citizens who do not, Kansas will help them obtain ID for free.

I am disenfranchised.
