Secretary of State Republican candidate Kris Kobach announced Tuesday during a press conference that if elected, he will push to allow citizens to put initiatives on the ballot without going through the legislature.
Currently 26 states have some means for voters to put lows or constitutional changes up for vote. Kobach said the initiative would allow voters to tackle issues such as immigration and other issues voters deem significant.
“I don’t care who benefits from it in terms of the left of right,” he said during the press conference. “It’s right for we the people to control our own political destiny.”
