TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says 18-year-old voters who attend public high schools can show their school identification at the polls to satisfy the state's new photo ID requirement. But students from private high schools are out of luck.

Kobach says his office has received many questions about whether various types of photo IDs are acceptable since the law he championed took effect in January.

On Wednesday, Kobach said it would be most fair to treat photo IDs from public and private high schools the same. But he noted the new law specifically requires IDs issued by government agencies, which arguably includes school districts.

Kobach says his office is drafting regulations to give more guidance but will allow students to use public school IDs at the polls Nov. 6.
