TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Democratic challenger Jean Schodorf says Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach should have had a system in place months ago to search for state birth certificates for voters whose registrations are on hold.

The Republican secretary of state said his office and the state health department were finalizing an agreement Tuesday on using birth certificates to reduce the list of voters with registrations on hold for failing to comply with a requirement to provide proof of their U.S. citizenship.

Kobach says he expects the checks to begin in mid-January.

Schodorf says Kobach should have had an agreement in place when the law took effect at the start of 2013. She questioned whether he'll be able to administer the program smoothly.

More than 19,300 voters have registrations on hold.
