Kansas Voting Machine Records Raise Questions

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach's office failed to produce records this summer showing it had certified the voting equipment used by hundreds of thousands of Kansans. State statute requires the Secretary of State to certify equipment before it is purchased by counties and to keep such certification on file. But the office, responding to a Kansas Open Records Act request in June, could provide only two letters of equipment certification that Kobach issued in the last five years.
