WICHITA, Kan. (AP) Democrats halted a 20-year decline in Kansas voter registration numbers, but still trail far behind the dominant Republican party, official figures released Monday show.
On the eve of the 2018 midterm election, the Kansas secretary of states office released the latest figures showing more than 1.84 million registered voters in the state. All the political parties in Kansas added to their ranks, while the number of unaffiliated voters fell.
Democrats grew their ranks to 463,114 voters, comprising slightly more than 25 percent of total voters eligible to cast a ballot in the upcoming election. That halted a two-decade trend of lower registration for the party.
