Kentucky voter registration grows post-election
From Michon Lindstrom
Frankfort, KY - Secretary of State Michael Adams announced that voter registration has continued to grow even following the November election.
For November, Kentucky saw 11,078 new voters register, for a net gain of 4,004. Meanwhile, 7,074 voters were removed - 5,517 deceased voters, 953 felony convicts, 498 who moved out of state, 81 who were adjudged mentally incompetent, and 25 who voluntarily de-registered. These totals include 580 registrations and 10 removals begun, but not effectuated, between October 12 and November 8, when by statute the voter rolls were closed.
Secretary Adams reminds Kentuckians who wish to update their political party affiliation to do so by December 31, in order to be eligible to vote in the May 16, 2023 primary in the party of their choice. By law, a voter who is registered as a Democrat or Independent after December 31, 2022 will not be able to vote in May's Republican primary, and a voter who is registered as a Republican or Independent after December 31, 2022 will not be able to vote in May's Democratic primary. This rule does not apply to voters newly registered after the first of the year.
"I am pleased to see voter registration increase even after the 2022 general election," said Adams. "As we go into the new year, I hope this trend continues."
Republican registrants account for 45.5 percent of the electorate with 1,633,890 voters. Republican registration increased by 4,526 voters, or 0.28 percent. Democratic registrants account for 44.6 percent of the electorate, with 1,603,358 voters. Democratic registration decreased by 3,860 voters, or 0.24 percent. Voters registered as Independent or with other affiliations account for 9.9 percent of the electorate, with 356,983 voters. "Other" registration increased by 3,338 voters, or 0.94 percent.
