WICHITA, Kan. - Kansas NOW is an organizational member of the Kansas Voter Coalition. This coalition is comprised of progressive organizations within the state that have joined forces to defeat the proposed Voter ID Law being pursued by Secretary of State-Elect Kris Kobach.
Mr. Kobach is an anti-immigration zealot, who wrote the infamous Arizona immigration law. A recent Washington Times headline coined him as "An Anti-illegals Activist." Why the voters of Kansas chose to elect an "activist" to an apolitical post such as Secretary of State is beyond me, but I digress.
Voter ID might seem like a matter that would blink dimly on Kansas feminist radar, but I am quickly learning just how important this issue is for the women of the state.
