On October 19, 2018, the ACLU of Kansas issued a third letter to Ford County Clerk Debbie Cox regarding the non-partisan, election protection program to supplement assistance to voters at the polls. This came after an October 3 letter to Ms. Cox, her cancellation of a telephone call scheduled for October 5 and unwillingness to reschedule, and an October 16 letter. 

Ms. Cox did not respond to the October 19 letter but did forward it to State Election Director Brian Caskey in an email saying, "LOL."
