Kansas Voter Program Checks Nationwide

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)-- A program run by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach compares voter registration records among participating states to check for duplicate voter registrations and possible double voting.

The program, called Called Interstate Crosscheck, or ``The Kansas Project,'' goes through more than 100 million voter records from 27 participating states and works to clear up registration rolls.

Kobach told The Lawrence Journal-World that most double registrations are unintentional and result from a person moving from one state to another and re-registering to vote. But he said the computer program works to find voters who may have voted in two separate states.

18 of the participating states are solid Republican or lean Republican and 9 are solid Democratic or lean Democratic.
