On September 13, the Kansas State Objections Board, consisting of the Lieutenant Governor, the Attorney General, and the Secretary of State, heard a challenge to President Obama’s name being listed on the November ballot. The Board postponed making any decision about the matter until next week. See this news story, which suggests that Kansas officials will be seeking information about President Obama’s birth certificate from Hawaii officials.
The Board also rejected an appeal by the Americans Elect Party of Kansas to list Roseanne Barr on the ballot as the Americans Elect nominee. The board did not explain the basis for its decision. Casey Peters presented the Americans Elect Party of Kansas case via telephone speaker phone, because at the time he was physically in his state of residence, California. No one argued against the Barr nomination except for an employee of the Kansas Secretary of State. It is not known if the Board’s decision will be explained in writing.
