By West Kentucky Star Staff
FRANKFORT - On Wednesday, Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams announced that for the second consecutive month, more voters were removed from Kentucky's voter rolls than added.

In January, 5,613 new voters registered, while 14,927 voters were removed. Those removed include 12,705 deceased voters, 460 nonresident voters, 65 voters who had voluntarily de-registered, 56 mentally disabled voters, and 1,641 felony convicts.

Adams said there has been an 0.26 percent decrease in voters on the rolls since December 31.

"In 2020, we showed that we could expand voter access and tighten election security at the same time," said Secretary Adams. "By cleaning up our voter rolls, we're showing Kentuckians that we're serious about ballot integrity as we ask the General Assembly to make voting more accessible."

According to Adams, Democratic registrants represent 47 percent of the electorate, with 1,660,716 registered voters. Democratic registration has dropped by 6,458 since December 31. Republican registrants represent 44 percent of voters, with 1,573,369 registered voters. Republicans saw a decrease of 4,192 registered voters since December 31. Additionally, 9 percent of registered voters are listed under other affiliations, which saw an increase of 1,336 registrants.
