SCHWAB COMMENTS ON VOTE CENTER LITIGATION

Friday, February 14, 2020

TOPEKA – Kansas Secretary of State Scott Schwab issued the following statement on the threat of litigation by the Kansas Democratic Party and their national associates:

“It is odd that Kansas Democrats, with the assistance of their friends in Washington D.C., chose to file litigation instead of discussing the promulgation of vote center rules and regulations. We respectfully ask Governor Kelly to join us in asking her colleagues to drop this litigation. After the disaster in Iowa, it is surprising they are willing to compromise the security and credibility of Kansas elections. Democrats should know that implementing new procedures and technology without proper testing, training and oversight will only cause chaos and disenfranchise voters.”
