Republican voter registrations outpace Democrats

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Far more Kentuckians have registered to
vote as Republicans than Democrats over the past six months,
continuing a longstanding trend.

Democrats still outnumber Republicans in the state 1.6 million
to 1.1 million. But Republicans added nearly 22,000 voters since
last year's November general election. Democrats added about 8,000
voters based on information released Wednesday by the secretary of
state's office.

People who registered with "other" parties added nearly 6,000
voters since last November.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes said nearly 3 million
Kentuckians will be eligible to vote in the May 22 primary. Of
those, 53 percent are women and 47 percent men.
