Kansas Voter Scrub Could Take Weeks

(AP) – Some Kansas election officials expect to take weeks to cancel incomplete voter registrations even with a new rule for culling records from Secretary of State Kris Kobach.
And county election officials said Monday that even when the job is done, electronic records for such residents still will be accessible, not deleted.
A new rule from the Republican secretary of state took effect Friday and directed counties to cancel registrations incomplete for more than 90 days.
Most of the 31,000 affected registrations are for residents who haven’t complied with a 2013 law requiring new voters to produce papers documenting their U.S. citizenship.
Sedgwick County Election Commissioner Tabitha Lehman said her office will first go through a list of 1,700 people who were on the incomplete list but have Kansas birth certificates.
