WICHITA, Kansas – In an effort to save money, thousands of voter registrations are set to be purged on Friday. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach says that it’s an effort to save the state money, however, critics say that it’s just another way to suppress residents right to vote.
More than 36,000 people are said to be impacted. These are individuals who have not fully completed their registrations by showing proof of citizenship.
Those removed this week have been on the suspended list for more than 90 days.
