LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas Supreme Court has cleared the way for a grand jury investigation of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s handling of voter registrations before the 2016 election.

The Lawrence Journal-World reported the court late Tuesday denied Kobach’s second request to review a June ruling of the Kansas Court of Appeals. The lower court had said Douglas County District Court must summon the grand jury to investigate.

A Lawrence man, Steven Davis, who gathered enough signatures to force the investigation contends Kobach’s office didn’t register some people who tried to register online or at state driver’s license bureaus.
