Kansas Voter Rule Hits Unaffiliated

Associated Press - September 21, 2013 7:56 am

A federal appeals court will hear oral arguments in September in an appeal that could affect the voting rights of thousands of voters in Kansas, Georgia and Alabama in upcoming elections.

A majority of the prospective Kansas voters whose registrations were put on hold after the state began enforcing a proof-of-citizenship law claim no political affiliation.

An Associated Press computer analysis shows that 57 percent of the registrations put on hold since the law took effect in January were from people listing themselves as unaffiliated. Such residents make up only 30 percent of the state’s 1.7 million registered voters.

Thousands of Kansas residents have registrations on hold and cannot legally vote because they have yet to provide citizenship papers.

AP analyzed a state list of registrations on hold as of August 28th.

The analysis shows that since the rule took effect, such registrations have remained on hold on average for close to four months.

Look KSAL if you are going to allow this type of behavior to continue on here I am going to look into what can be done about it and will not tolerate this type of behavior. Evidently you love for this to happen as you continue to let this person on here and do nothing about removing there comments until someone complains. I believe if you are not going to implement your policies then you are liable for his comments.
