Jean Schodorf says Kansans with voter registrations that are on hold should be allowed to cast ballots until there’s actual suspicion of voter fraud according to a story from KPR.

Schodorf is the Democratic candidate running for secretary of state. 

She originally voted for the law requiring proof-of-citizenship documentation when serving in the Kansas Senate, but now says the law has not worked as promised and is disenfranchising to eligible voters.

Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach supports the law and says it helps prevent voter fraud.

Schodorf stopped by the High Plains Public Radio studios on March 19, 2014. She talked about her change in parties, position on voter registration requirements, what she will do if elected, and why voters should choose her. Listen to the conversation with Cindee Talley.
