More Dead Voters Removed from Rolls than New Voters Added, Adams Says
Kentucky's voter rolls declined from March 31 to April 30, Secretary of State Michael G. Adams announced.
There are 1,265 fewer voters, or a decrease of 0.04 percent.
The state's voter registration number is 3,468,647.
Democratic registrants continue to represent just more than 48 percent of the electorate with 1,677,637 registered voters. Democratic registration dropped by 1,495, since March 31, a 0.09 percent decrease. Republican registrants total 1,484,338, or almost 43 percent of voters, with a small increase of 276 registered voters, a gain of 0.02 percent since March 31.
Almost 9 percent of voters are listed under other affiliations, which saw a decrease of 46 registrants, a 0.01 percent decline.
“I am committed to cleaning up our voter rolls. Voter registration numbers reveal a decline, due to removal of the deceased, felons, and people who moved out of state. In fact, more dead voters were removed in April than new voters added,” said Adams.
Complete registration statistics are available on the State Board of Elections website.
