TOPEKA – (July 1, 2021) – Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt today issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision upholding certain Arizona election security measures:
“Today’s U.S. Supreme Court decision sends a strong message that states have authority to enact measures designed to ensure secure and accurate elections. The outcome of this case strengthens our arguments that courts should reject the pending legal challenges to the reasonable election-integrity reforms enacted this year by the Legislature.”
The attorney general’s office is defending new Kansas election laws against two lawsuits challenging their legality. Those lawsuits are VoteAmerica v. Schwab in U.S. District Court and League of Women Voters of Kansas v. Schwab in Shawnee County District Court.
