Kansas photo ID law in effect

Posted: Updated:

Roeland Park's election Tuesday is the first to test a Kansas voter photo identification law.

The special election is to fill a vacancy on the Roeland Park City Council. A law in Kansas took effect at the start of the year that requires voters to show photo ID.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach said the law is intended to clamp down on record voter fraud in Kansas.

"We only see the tip of the iceberg," he said. "Voter fraud is easy to pull off in most cases. No one is able to detect it."

If you don't take a photo ID to the polls, you can cast a provisional ballot. But you must return within a week to the election board and show a valid photo ID for your vote to count.
