WICHITA, Kan. — Is voter fraud enough of a problem in Kansas that new legislation is needed?
A coalition against voter I.D. says no.
The coalition is made of voting rights groups. It met in Wichita Monday night, and plans to fight a proposal by Secretary of State-elect Kris Kobach to require voters to show a photo I.D. at the polls.
The coalition says, the current registration system is working just fine.
"Over the last six years, there have been six reports of voter fraud, only one prosecution during that time period," says the NAACP's Kevin Myles. "Although there have been nearly 10-million votes cast."
Myles says the voter I.D. system would cost millions of dollars just as the state faces budget problems.
