Kansas Voter Rule Hits Unaffiliated

KSAL StaffSeptember 21, 2013

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.
