KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — Two national nonprofit groups argued Wednesday that a new Kansas law placing restrictions on out-of-state-groups ability to mail advance ballot applications disenfranchises voters, but the state countered that the groups’ mailing efforts led to a flood of duplicate applications during the 2020 presidential election. U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil issued no ruling on VoteAmerica and the Voter Participation Center’s request for a preliminary injunction against the law. Both sides will return to court on Oct. 8 to finish making arguments in the case.
