Voting Rights Group Says 6,570 Kansas Registrations Purged

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The League of Women Voters says Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has discarded as of August the registrations of about 6,570 prospective voters under a rule that allows him to toss them after 90 days because they did not prove citizenship. Those prospective voters likely registered at some place other than a motor vehicle office without providing citizenship documents, so their voting rights are not protected by recent court orders. They would need to register again to vote in November. Kansas requires proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote. The Secretary of State's office says it could not immediately confirm the number. The League purchased copies of the Kansas voter suspense list in March and in August, and compared them to calculate the number of missing registrations.
