TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office has filed three criminal election fraud cases in two counties alleging people voted in Kansas while doing so in another state.

One case in Sherman County alleges a man voted in elections there in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Records obtained Tuesday from Colorado officials show the man voted there at the same time.

Kobach’s office also filed two criminal cases in Johnson County, alleging that an Olathe couple voted there in 2010 when they weren’t qualified. Kobach said the couple also voted in Arkansas.

The cases are the first under a new law giving Kobach’s office the authority to prosecute election fraud. The cases were filed Friday.

Kobach said double voting is a serious crime that undermines the principle of one person, one vote.
