TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man born in 1967 on a U.S. Air Force installation in Germany will be able to vote after he was certified as a U.S. citizen.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/2erg9gd ) reports that the state Election Board made the decision Wednesday after hearing from Dale Weber. It was the fifth time the board convened to sort out a citizenship challenge related to voting eligibility. The high-level examination process followed imposition of rigid standards tied to citizenship for people registering to vote in Kansas.

Weber said he couldn’t access personal records to demonstrate citizenship. But he was able to recite key details, including his mother’s maiden name. A review panel also confirmed the parents’ places of birth in Kansas.

Attorney General Derek Schmidt said he was satisfied with the evidence presented.
