TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Secretary of State Kris Kobach says he's not trying to impose a dual voter registration system in Kansas, as a new lawsuit alleges.

Kobach said Thursday his office is only doing planning and hopes to avoid a system treating voters differently, based on what registration forms they use.

The lawsuit was filed in Shawnee County District Court by the American Civil Liberties Union on behalf of a gay rights group and two voters.

It seeks to block Kobach from limiting voters who use a federal voter registration form to voting only in federal races and not local and state contests.

The federal form doesn't require people to comply with the state's proof-of-citizenship requirement.

But Kobach notes that he's pushing the federal government to change its form.
