motorboater voter
You cover up your dirtypillows with a long-form birth certificate, young lady

Remember back in the day when Congress passed the “motor voter” law, which gave all American-made cars the right to vote, or at least required states to provide voter registration to people getting drivers’ licenses? Passed in 1993, it was one of those crazy attempts to increase voter participation by making it easier for people to vote, which is a terrible thing of course because then the wrong sort of people might start voting.

Happily, creative Republicans like Kansas secretary of state, walking vomit stain Kris Kobach, convinced the state legislature that there were millions of fraudsters getting fraudulently registered, so Kansas added a requirement that people also provide proof of citizenship to be registered. This created a bit of a problem, since the 1993 National Voter Registration Act only requires people to affirm that they’re citizens, with the possibility of being prosecuted for perjury if they fib about that. And now the ACLU is suing Kansas, claiming that the proof-of-citizenship requirement violates federal law and is nothing more than a double-plus ungood attempt to suppress voting. The ACLU says over 30,000 possible voters have been blocked from registering by the Kansas law.

“What’s happening in Kansas is outrageous,” said Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project. “Thousands of Kansans, including military veterans who have valiantly served our country, are blocked from voting by unnecessary bureaucratic roadblocks imposed by state officials. These shameful actions have made Kansas an epicenter of voter suppression. We say no more barriers. Let people vote.”

We don’t know about Kansas being the “epicenter of voter suppression” — there are so many contenders, especially North Carolina — but Kansas really is pretty stinky. Basically, the state lets people fill out the federal voter registration form at the DMV, but it still requires citizenship documentation for the registration to be considered complete. So many people end up thinking they’ve registered, only to find out later that they’ve been purged from the voter rolls for not “completing” the process with an additional trip to the courthouse or DMV with a copy of their birth certificate or passport or other documentation.

The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of six Kansans who registered at DMV offices but weren’t put on the registration rolls. Kobach says it’s all a big misunderstanding because those big sillies at the ACLU and their dumb clients foolishly think that completing a registration form actually means you’re registered to vote, when there are still many important hoops to jump through:

Mr. Kobach said the A.C.L.U. was misinterpreting federal law, which requires only that states accept voter registration applications at the Department of Motor Vehicles — not that those applications have to be confirmed at that time.

“The state has every right to verify that the person is eligible to vote before completing the person’s registration,” said Mr. Kobach[.]

Under Kansas’s insane “two tier” system, if you register with the federal form from the DMV, you can vote in federal elections, but you’re not really fully truly cross-you-heart-and-hope-to-move-to-Colorado registered to vote for state and local elections until you provide that proof of citizenship. Such partial registrations are called “in suspense,” because voters are like a character in a Hitchcock movie, not knowing whether they can vote before the knife comes slashing down. About 35,000 registrations have been in suspense since the law took effect in 2013. The ACLU suit is challenging that bit of nonsense, as well as Kobach’s policy of simply throwing out any registration forms if they remain “in suspense” over 90 days, which the ACLU says has purged at least 12,000 people from the system. Kobach’s reply was some absolutely gorgeous doublespeak:

Mr. Kobach said it was misleading to say that registrations were being purged because the people whose voter applications were in suspense had never officially been registered to vote.

Nothing to see here, folks — you can’t disenfranchise someone who hasn’t jumped through all the hoops, now can you? Despite there being virtually zero evidence of voting fraud, Kobach insists he’s only keeping the system clean, so that riffraff and dangerous widows don’t do fraud all over Kansas. To make matters worse, even if you have all your papers together, Kansas’s system is still such a mess that three of the ACLU plaintiffs had their registration put on the suspended list, even though they’d provided proof of citizenship. Kobach says that was merely an early “glitch” in the system, and everything’s fine now, no problem, and you wouldn’t want a bunch of imaginary fraudulent voters voting, now would you? Especially not the Democratic ones.

    On the contrary, from Kobach’s perspective, the fact that any Democrat got a vote is evidence of voter fraud.

    there is rarely proof of voter fraud but always proof of this kind of jiggery pokery. Perhaps a few Federal felony convictions might have a way of tamping that down?

      Kobach has proposed a settlement by which “certain applicants” would be granted three-fifths of a vote.

  • Merge the selective service form with a voting registration form. Mandate that everyone fill one out on their 18th birthday.

    For that matter, move voting to a Monday, mandate that it is a paid holiday for all US citizens (who aren’t in essential jobs), make voting mandatory, provide free public transportation on election day, and have early voting available the Sunday before so transit workers and essential emergency personnel can also vote.

      Or, just go to the Oregon system. Vote by mail.

          You have a good system in place. Now you just need to chlorinate the political gene pool.

      • eddi

        I still like the holiday idea. Even here in Oregon there is a big last minute rush on Election Day to get ballots to the courthouse. They set up downtown in Salem with a drive through lane to toss them to volunteers. Personally, I take a couple of days to read the voter pamphlet, check out the candidate’s web page and even (shudder) read the editorials about the issues. Then make my mark, sign the envelope, stick a stamp on it and let the Post Office handle the rest.
        Oh. And for those who try claiming the stamp is a poll tax? You can always drop it off at the county courthouse or other designated spot sans stamp.

      • Courser

        Same in Colorado. I LOVE voting by mail ballot but I always take it to one of the dropboxes. I don’t trust the US Mail with my vote. ALSO, I get an email that my ballot was received, accepted and tallied. Pretty cool.

        And yes, we register to vote at the DMV, but I think you can now just do it online. Our online system is pretty robust.

    • nmmagyar

      NM has two weeks of early voting and you can go to any polling location (I think it might have to be in your home county) to vote.

    • Pickwicknext

      I register and/or change my address right on election day. Just carry my passport and a recent piece of official mail. Oh, Canada indeed!

    • Amy!

      Voter ID is designed as a sort of subtle poll tax. Since that is clearly illegal, states that want to require voter id ought to be, in turn, required to guarantee that acquiring such an id is zero cost to the voter, including reimbursement of any time taken off from work, travel costs, and so on (and charging for any mandatory pictures or whatever is right out).

      • Celtic_Gnome

      That was with regard to destroying Medicare. Also a favorite theme of the GOP but less talked about during election years.

      • yyyaz

        Actually, Ronnie Dumnutz was in a pre-emptory strike against creating Medicare. Which was implemented in 1966. As I recall, the weaselly bungnostril actually used the words “socialized medicine” regularly as it were the most heinous idea since thumbscrews. A position, I might be so bold and reckless to say, is a rallying point for the most heinous group of panderers since ever.

        As Dead Justice Scalia says, the Constitution says nothing about the courts needing to hear about exculpatory evidence found after the trial. As long as the defendant got a fair trial, new evidence be damned. Fry ’em, gas ’em, stick ’em or shoot ’em. The Framers were perfectly okay with that.

        In all seriousness, he did say that which is particularly damning given what we know about the reliability of eyewitness testimony and the fact that 10’s of thousands of people were convicted for decades based on hair and fiber evidence. The science behind hair and fiber analysis has been proven to be completely unreliable. Yet, none of those convicted by this evidence has been released.

        “Can it be that my eyesight’s defective?
        Has your east tit the least bit
        The best of your west tit
        Or is it a trick of perspective?”

    Um, seems to me there’s quite massive fraud, given how he’s just given testimony that 12,000 voter registrations were tossed out without any attempt to notify the voters in question that they would not be eligible to vote…..

    But I guess it’s not fraud to disenfranchise people, even if you do it by deliberately misleading them, as long as you’re doing it all official-like.

      That’s election fraud, not voter fraud. It’s a nuanced difference, but basically voter fraud is perpetrated by someone trying to cast a ballot, whereas election fraud is pretty much everything else.

        Election Systems & Software libelz!

        • Amy!

          Ha. I worked on a proprietary electronic voting machine’s software, twenty years ago. That system’s prolly been retired. But based on that experience?

          There is nothing bad that can be said about electronic voting systems that could not be defended against a charge of libel in court. Truth is an absolute defense; the systems absolutely suck.

    Didn’t read the article, but as to the picture I think she should have another sticker that reads “Me Too!”

    I got a bunch of curious stares on the bus on the way home with that picture. Thanks Dok!

    Every day the world gets a little worse.

    OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE! Since most places accept a valid driver’s license as legal ID, why doesn’t Kansas do the fair thing and require every single person who wants a driver’s license to bring in their birth certificate or passport? Or would that inconvenience and piss off too many of the wrong fucking people?

    • If you get your license from KS, they have it. If you were born in Kansas, but got your original license elsewhere, the state has access to check your citizenship and they eventually did this last year for about 10% of the suspended voters.

      The problem comes the elderly, no longer able to driver that may not even possess a “certified” copy of their birth certificate also don’t have a way to physically get one, some can’t afford the $20 fee and if you’re a woman – you also have to provide certified documentation of any name changes (i.e. marriage/divorce/deaths).

      Very little of the state’s population live in a city, many folks live in central or western Kansas in incredibly poor and removed from services that many of us take for granted every day.

    I’m still waiting to see all the cases of this in-person voter fraud we must be protected from.

  • RobKanC

    Has anyone wondered why voter fraud is so prevalent in republican controlled states? They must know something, that we don’t, as they were obviously elected by voting. mmmmm..

  • Celtic_Gnome

    I so worry about the 2016 election in Ohio. It will only take a few lines of code to hook the voter tabulation system back up to the Republican-controlled mirror site the Secretary of State’s office set up in 2004 to re-elect Bush.

    • I’m hoping Anonymous will be watching.

    Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh… what about REAL ID?

  • Sterculius

    I don’t understand it. Wouldn’t it be more simple to use a color swatch? If your skin is lighter than the swatch, you get to vote, if it isn’t, you get drug tested.

    As a citizen of the state of Kansas I’d like to apologize for Kobach and his shitty fucking laws.

    I’m truly sorry people here are so fucking ignorant.

  • Antimassacree

    Looking forward to the day when Kris Kobach gets stuffed head first into the memory hole.

    wouldn’t it be fun if the ALCU actually created an assistance service and payment system to assist people in getting proper identification to present when registering instead of pulling numbers out of their collective arses and clogging up the judicial system? …. I am almost 60 years old and spent 30+ years traveling the globe in the US Navy and I still have my original Birth Certificate. Grow up and be responsible for your important paperwork. After all, one cannot take an animal to a vet for a regular appointment without proving it has had it’s rabies shot… I bet most of you have that one handy…..
