GOP push against ballot drop boxes hits rural places, too

Holes in the sidewalk outside Lecompton City Hall are a reminder that voters can drop their ballots in a box bolted there during elections. But as Republicans question the security of drop boxes, this small northeast Kansas town — and plenty of others — stands to lose them. A proposal approved early Thursday by the GOP-controlled Kansas Senate would cut the number of drop boxes statewide by more than 40% from the 2020 elections. It’s part of a national Republican effort to tighten election laws and roll back voter conveniences adopted during the first year of the coronavirus pandemic. John Hanna, The Associated Press.
