When the U.S. Supreme Court refused on Monday to hear a California case challenging the federal law, it probably left state lawmakers no choice but to comply, opponents conceded. "It probably leaves us with no alternative," said Sen. Janice Hardenburger, R-Haddam, one of the Legislature's most outspoken critics of the federal law. Under the National Voter Registration Act of 1993, states must register voters at governmental offices that have contact with the public, such as driver's license, motor ye- ; hide registration and public assistance offices — or by mail. U.S. District Judge Kathryn Vratil of Kansas City, Kan., ordered the state last year to comply with the act. Kansas was one of seven states that began litigation to fight compliance and now finds itself with a dual registration system and no hope the Supreme Court will lis- ten to its appeal. Vratil's order applies to federal elections — the president and Congress — but not to state elections. That means people who register at governmental offices and not at election offices are registered for federal elections but not for state elections. If perpetuated, the dual system would mean some voters could vote for president, U.S. Senate and U.S. House in November, but not for legislators. "The question is whether the governor and Legislature want to implement a dual system, and I don't see that as a workable solution," Hardenburger said. Hardenburger's major concern is the potential for duplicate registrations. A person could register at more than one government office and it might take election officials months or years to discover the duplication, she said. Tracking duplicate registrations is extremely costly, Harden- burgei 1 said. • Another opponent, Secretary of State Ron Thornburgh, said he was disappointed by the court ruling but urged the Legislature to take action to avoid the dual registration system. "I have grave concerns about the upcoming elections under the current scenario," he said.
