Voter Supression Law -- Problems:
WHY THE LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS of KANSAS OPPOSES THE HB 2067, the KANSAS DOCUMENTATION OF CITIZENSHIP LAW
by Ernestine Krehbiel, President LWVK
We believe that the new Government-required identification law with the citizenship documentation is a CUMBERSOME, EXPENSIVE law and may violate the us constitution. there must never be any cost to voting.
This law (HB 2067) expands the government of Kansas with cost and bureaucratic scaffolding to implement a heavy handed and undue burden for Kansas voters without evidence of any voter impersonation in Kansas. Moving it up to June, 2012 does not solve these hurdles for voters.
Kansas already has had a commonsense voter identification law that ensures that eligible voters are who they say they are on Election Day. Voters put the last four digits of Soc Sec. or Drivers License on their voter registration cards and give their signature at the poll. These four Soc. Security digits have proved very accurate for identifying US citizens.
The two-year re-study of our current State Finance position will conclude in December 2012. Until that time, the LWVK will operate under its current position which calls for a broad-based tax system that is fair and provides adequate revenue.
Study of tax policy this year will continue under the principles in our current position. We encourage LWVK members to consider legislative actions during the 2012 Legislative Session in light of our current position.
