Secretary of State Michael Adams Says Voter Registration Went Up In June

Secretary of State Michael Adams announced voter registration numbers went up in June in the Commonwealth. Kentucky saw 9,693 new voter registrations last month. 4,362 voter registrations were removed from the rolls. Of the 4,362 registrations removed, 3,030 were voters who have died, while 603 were convicted of felonies. 554 had moved out of state. Republican registration increased by 4,947 voters and Democratic registration decreased by 1,717 voters. Registration for those voting for a third party or “other” political affiliation went up by 1,502 voters. Adams also promised to defend Kentucky’s bipartisan election integrity statute. The statute, signed into law by Gov. Andy Beshear, is designed to prevent registered voters in other states from voting in Kentucky.
