Younger, Unaffiliated Kansas Voters More Prone to Purges, According to Report

AP) – A newspaper report says young and politically unaffiliated Kansas residents are most likely to be affected by the state’s plans to purge the names of people with incomplete registrations from its voter lists.
The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/1G9x5fO ) more than half of the prospective voters with incomplete registrations list no party affiliation.
The Eagle also said more than 40 percent are under 30.
The newspaper analyzed a list of nearly 36,700 suspended registrations obtained from Secretary of State Kris Kobach’s office.
The Republican secretary of state has enacted a new administrative rule removing the names of any prospective voters whose registrations have been incomplete for more than 90 days. It takes effect Friday.
Most incomplete registrations are for voters who haven’t met a requirement to document their U.S. Citizenship.
