FILE - In this Aug. 1, 2013, file photo, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the architect of the state's proof-of-citizenship law for new voters, answers questions during an Associated Press interview in Topeka, Kan. U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren in Wichita, Kan., ruled on Wednesday, March 19, 2014, that the U.S. Election Assistance Commission has no legal authority to deny requests from Kansas and Arizona to add state-specific instructions to a national voter registration form. The states and their top election officials — secretaries of state Kris Kobach of Kansas and Ken Bennett of Arizona — sued the agency to force the action. (AP Photo/John Hanna, File) less
