Democratic registrants continue to represent just more than 48 percent of the electorate with 1,677,777 registered voters. Democratic registration increased by 140 since April 30, a 0.01 percent increase. Republican registrants total 1,491,224, or almost 43 percent of voters, with an increase of 6,886 registered voters, a gain of 0.46 percent since April 30. Almost 9 percent of voters are listed under other affiliations, which saw an increase of 718 registrants, or a 0.23 percent uptick.

“As the state reopens, I hope people will be more apt, and able, to engage in voter registration,” said Secretary Adams.
