A recent news story in Kansas was headlined: “Kobach, Schwab Fuzzy on Voting Registration Access.”
It goes on to state that “both nearly two-term Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach and the Republican running to follow him in that job have mistakenly described ways to register to vote.”
Kobach is the current Secretary of State and Kansas’ chief elections officer. Schwab is running for Kobach’s job. And neither of them knows for sure how voter registration works in Kansas?
Brian McClendon does not seem fuzzy at all on the voter registration process in Kansas. Brian led the development of the nonpartisan online voter registration tool KSvotes.org. It can be used on a cell phone and takes less than 5 minutes. More than 24,000 eligible Kansas citizens have used it to register to vote in the last year and more than 19,000 Kansans used it to request an advanced ballot. Now that’s a candidate already doing the job of Kansas Secretary of State, which is more than can be said for the Kobach/Schwab partnership.
Brian is not a career politician. He’s a former Google vice president who famously made Kansas the center of Google Earth. He’ll bring the leadership of a businessman and the efficiency of his technological expertise to the Secretary of State’s office. His opponent Schwab wants to continue Kobach’s politics and we all know that’s been a mess.
It’s clear to me that the Google guy Brian BAM McClendon will be the best for Kansas.
