TOPEKA — Starting next year, all voters will be required to show photo ID before casting a ballot under legislation sent to Gov. Sam Brownback on Tuesday.
The House approved Senate changes to the bill on a 111-11 vote. Brownback has said he supports the proposal.
The legislation was championed by Secretary of State Kris Kobach, a Republican, who made allegations of voter fraud a major issue in his successful race for office.
The Senate, however, trimmed back a couple of Kobach’s provisions.
