The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Kansas over a buffer area intended to prevent electioneering at polling places but that it says is stifling free speech.
The ACLU sued Secretary of State Scott Schwab over a policy that it says gives local election officials the ability to restrict speech within 250 feet of a polling location if they think it will be a nuisance.
The ACLU also names Johnson County Election Commissioner Ronnie Metsker in the lawsuit, saying he is enforcing the policy against nonpartisan election . . .
