KANSAS CITY - Earlier this year, a project anchored by the state of Kansas reviewed records from 22 states to search for duplicates, flagging some 5 million registration records as potentially problematic. The findings show Georgia tops among the states that were studied.
Here's a look at the five states that had the largest share of potential duplicates compared to the state's overall voter registration list:
- Georgia. 510,756 potential duplicates, 8.4 percent of list.
- South Carolina. 245,721 potential duplicates, 7.9 percent of list.
- Kentucky. 243,161 potential duplicates, 7.8 percent of list.
