Weather here on late Tuesday morning. Kate and SS news time 811. Kansas has certainly had its issues and and and laws concerning voter ID laws the last few years and Texas has had its share of issues with that. And let's check in with the Texas voter ID law and how it standing up Jim Ryan. ABC news correspondent in Dallas with a us this morning and and jam this law is getting challenged again and Texas. Well it is and a federal judge yesterday. Who would been asked to determine the intent of the lawmakers who put this into place in 2011. As ruled again that'd what's meats it's not constitutional that it was. Meant to be discriminatory and so that's where that stansted. It's not quite as there is strictly laud it as it's been placed it in Kansas. But undoubtedly visit this states where this sort of thing is in place are going to be looking at this very careful. Course you've got you've got one camp that saying that that these districts are drawn their discriminatory and at it that it harms people that. Want to vote Indian and join this idea is discriminatory in some aspects of it. Others are saying you know it's it's just part of the process part of the part of the voting process is how it's drawn up. This is how what is it how does the public feel about this is there any overwhelming sentiment either away from the the people of Texas. Well I think it depends on the area in which picture and taxes of course is that conservative place that has had eight. Republican legislature for years you know since that the 1990s. And I think generally they support the civil right he lava. Big governor or governor bush Governor Perry and now governor habitable said that it's intended to try to prevent fraud. To keep people from voting twice or from from voting outside the district sort voting third they're not in the country legally for example Ted but. It out there and so the judge yesterday indeterminate said that there there was this substantial risk of a voter fraud in the first place and that that that the year requiring of a picture right the does little to. To port that the first place. This is the ruling from the same judge that made the ruling earlier district judge in an appeals court. Senate back to her to reexamine and and she came up with the same decision she had earlier is so where I guess so where I guess is the channel they are their more challenges on the way airway it is. Where things stand now in Texas with that. Yet there may be effective they go on to district court in New Orleans could go on to the Supreme Court they've. I noticed it too seriously when you start talked about voting rights or or First Amendment issues did these things can do to get spring boarded up to. The federal court and into the Supreme Court so we'll see where that goes because I think assumption that it might at some point. I don't here in Kansas on one of the things a lot of people said was it did. Is there is there rampant voting fraud going on in in in the need for this it. Is there rampant voting fraud going on in Texas. Well it certainly detractors of this law have said that there is not the that they cases of people trying to vote illegally York. In multiple districts things like that it just doesn't happen very much. There was that a notable case just a few weeks ago woman who. Was in the country illegally. And had been here for years and years and and had a hundred Greek art work from a belief but still was not eligible to vote. I'd cast a ballot in the presidential election she was caught. As she did jail ballad they can be deportation of a potential vote. Bus and a doing some time and so I view of these these cases when they do happen or are handled pretty. Seriously. Texas voter ideologues seem Ryan with a some Dallas Jim what's going on Dallas today what's the big news. Well not much everywhere and more can pour the the bad weather to come in there'd been threat of of severe weather yesterday this all comes even as the outdoors hybrid system you may have heard Ted was hacked over the weekend. The but he got into it and and set off all 100 I don't think sirens on the Friday night into Saturday morning. There'll there's concern now that if bad weather calms the sirens don't go off for that they do go off. People won't take it seriously. Right and that's that's the concern with the did they find out who did that bit out they haven't said yet if they have figured it out they they haven't said they think they do know how it was done. And now the job is to try to keep it from happening again while. Packing dirt tracking down Acker. Now why interesting thanks Jim have a great day. Appreciate it that's Jim Ryan ABC news correspondent talking with a slide this morning from Dallas it was good chat with. With with Jim. This is Tuesday's special Election Day hearing in Kansas for the fourth congressional district polls are open a close at 7 o'clock tonight. Will have a live election results listened to us this evening and we'll bring you the results as they come in. We always put our news stories on KMS as FaceBook material like this Montana says Facebook's he'd seen those stories and comment. We get a comment from a listener today concerning the election now listener trade responded to and talked about the added the new voting machines and Trace says quote. Don't like the new voting machines after you vote. One it prints out a ballot to you take it to another machine to be scanned and retain the three someone is standing at the machine wanting you scanned York quote secret ballot. For. May be Komi is correct privacy is gone. So trade does not like the new voting machines I used those machines have you voted in advance yesterday. You used the new machines. Yes your assessment. I I wouldn't say privacy the issue they give you a folder to put it in so that you can put your ballot that it gets printed out in the folder so you don't have to do. Show it to anybody and you scan it faced down so. No one's actually. Looking at I mean unless someone's at you know. On the floor under you or something nobody's going to be looking at his ballot or nobody asked to. But yeah I it's it's you know it's it's visible of someone worded like look around and take a look at it you could see it. The problem I see with and I agree I don't like it either the problem I see with it is it's not nearly as fast. Rush the older more it's it's a more. Cumbersome. Process yeah well not to mention you can have twenty voting machines in a room. But when you print this thing out and you go there are one reason there are snow. There's just one now it's a quick process you'd down to put the thing out your folder you put it in and it zips right through and you're done. Let's say it but in a crowded election so he stand the bottleneck there any app you stand in line to wait for one of the machines and then you turn around and stand in line to wait for the scanner. We also had another story on tape in SS FaceBook about trumps most fervent supporters are dead wrong to oppose the Syrian air strikes. We had a listener Cyrus comment Cyrus says. Every single one of us should oppose a starting a new Iraq war in Syria we gained nothing have no plan for victory and can't define the enemy listener responses sent our stories check them out and respond to engage with us on Kate in SS FaceBook picture like this.

Always good to get home wolf activity started Melissa effort to Kansas and the National Anthem. Beating fly over a lot of pageantry but. And a lot of offense for the royals unfortunately. The Oakland a's won the game two and nothing royals' only got three hits they were all singles. What an all the a's got two run home run in the fourth inning but it was enough because the royals didn't do anything on offense. So Kansas City starts out with a home loss.
