LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) The Kansas Supreme Court has cleared the way for a grand jury investigation of Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobachs handling of voter registrations before the 2016 election.
The Lawrence Journal-World reported the court late Tuesday denied Kobachs 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 Kobachs office didnt register some people who tried to register online or at state drivers license bureaus.
