Nearly 10K Kentuckians join voter rolls ahead of Nov election

From Michon Lindstrom

Frankfort, KY - Secretary of State Michael Adams announced that, following two years of flatlined voter registration, Kentucky is seeing a surge, with 9,631 new voters joining the rolls in August.

"Voter registration is back," Adams said. "With COVID increasingly in the rearview mirror, political parties and civic organizations are able to promote voter registration, and we're doing our part as well."

In the same month, 5,373 voters were removed from the rolls - 4,189 deceased voters, 677 voters who were convicted of felonies, 412 voters who moved out of state, 65 voters adjudged incompetent, 29 voters who voluntarily de-registered, and 1 duplicate registration.

Republican registrants account for 45.3 percent of the electorate, with 1,618,444 voters. Republican registration increased by 3,266 voters, a .20 percent increase. Democratic registrants account for 44.9 percent of the electorate. Democratic registration shrunk by 1,099 voters, a .07 percent decrease. Voters registered as Independent or with other affiliations account for 9.8 percent of the electorate. "Other" registration increased by 2,191 voters, a .63 percent increase. Voters who are not Republicans or Democrats remain the fastest-growing share of the electorate.

Adams reminds Kentuckians that the deadline to register to vote to participate in the general election is October 11.
