TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- An Associated Press computer analysis shows that Kansas residents claiming no political affiliation are most likely to have voter registrations on hold because of the state's proof-of-citizenship law.

The analysis of data from the Kansas secretary of state's office also discloses that since the rule took effect in January, flawed or incomplete registrations have remained on hold an average of close to four months.

When new voters register, they must provide proof of their U.S. citizenship.

Through an open records request, AP obtained an electronic copy of the statewide list of registrations on hold at the end of August.

AP's computer analysis showed that 57 percent of those put on hold this year were unaffiliated Kansans.

Republicans accounted for 23 percent and Democrats, about 18 percent.
