Kansas Secretary of State files first criminal voter fraud cases under new prosecutorial authority

15th of October 2015

“Double voting is a serious crime. It undermines the equality of citizens.”

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office has charged three voters in two counties of casting ballots illegally while voting in another state in the same elections, filing the first cases under a new state law giving him the power to prosecute election fraud allegations.

A total of 16 charges were filed against the three accused double-voters for fraud dating back as far as 2010.  Kobach says more prosecutions are coming.

“Our republic is based on the principle of one person, one vote,” Kobach said in a brief interview. “Double voting is a serious crime. It undermines the equality of citizens.”
