Changes to Kansas election rules become law despite Governor Laura Kelly’s veto

Changes to Kansas election laws that limit the power of the executive and judicial branch and tighten rules around advance voting are now law despite Gov. Laura Kelly’s objections.

The Kansas Legislature voted Monday to override Kelly’s vetoes on two elections related measures.

The bills follow a trend in GOP-controlled statehouses nationwide to limit ballot access following unfounded claims of voter fraud during the 2020 election. Legislation in Washington to expand mail-in voting nationwide has stalled in the Senate.
