TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A Topeka activist says he'll start circulating petitions later this month for an election to recall Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Sonny Scroggins has been holding small protests against Kobach for several weeks.

Scroggins contends Kobach should be ousted over several issues. The concerns include Kobach's work on immigration issues that regularly takes him out of state and his advocacy of a new state law requiring voters to show photo identification at the polls.

Fellow activist Frank Smith says Kobach is trying to suppress voter turnout.

Kobach argues the photo ID law will prevent election fraud and says the issues raised by Scroggins and Smith were aired during his successful 2010 campaign.

Under Kansas law, recall proponents must gather signatures from nearly 83,000 registered voters to force an election.
