Dems Ramp up Kansas Registration Drives

KSAL StaffOctober 3, 2016

Democrats and voting rights advocates are ramping up voter registration drives across Kansas in the wake of recent court rulings allowing thousands of people to more easily register with a federal form or at motor vehicle offices without providing citizenship documents.

But the state’s Republican Party contends those court cases are “practically irrelevant” to the November election.

GOP Executive Director Clay Barker says it isn’t putting party emphasis on registration because its numbers are so high in Kansas and registration “tends to take care of itself.”

Republicans comprise 45 percent of the state’s 1.76 million registered voters. Unaffiliated voters make up 29 percent of the electorate, while Democrats trail with 25 percent.

The League of Women Voters is also advising its volunteers to use the federal form to register voters.
