Kentucky Today: New voters registered as ‘Independent’ outpace both R and D registrations in July

According to Kentucky Today,

While registered Republicans recently edged out registered Democrats in Kentucky, the GOP was not the recipient of the most newly registered voters in July, according to Secretary of State Michael Adams.
Kentucky voter registration as Independent, or under other political affiliations, outpaced the two major parties, during that time, as “Other” registration grew at more than double the rate of Republican or Democrat registration.
“Political allegiances are in flux,” Adams said. “Republicans recently took the lead in voter registration from Democrats, but there’s more to the story, as many voters now do not affiliate with either party. Any candidate for statewide office needs to not just hold the base, but also reach out to others.”
