Florida sets new record with 5 million registered Democratic voters

Democrats hold a voter registration advantage over Republicans in the key battleground state.

For the first time in Florida's history, a political party in the state has more than 5 million registered voters.

As of Jan. 31, Democrats had 5.04 million registered voters in the state, compared to 4.79 million registered Republicans,
according to Florida's Department of State. An additional 3.78 million voters are registered with minor parties or have no party affiliation.

Democrats gained approximately 53,000 new registered voters in the last year, while Republicans gained 33,000 voters.

At a Tuesday press conference, the Florida Democratic Party announced the milestone achievement, alongside representatives from Forward Florida Action, Alianza for Progress, and the New Florida Majority.

3. Now all the Local Dems have to do is get them to vote. Repubs in this state always vote

Glad to see the voter registration is higher but this is a difficult state to win. Hopefully we can this time.

6. It should be apparent now . . .

This is why the Republican leadership in Florida were doing their damnedest to nullify the will of the voters and keep as many citizens off the voting rolls as possible. This doesn't turn Florida into a Democratic stronghold, but it does mean that our efforts to get out the vote and elect more Democrats will bear more fruit.

10. My county has had a red tint for years.



We've got some work to do. Link: https://www.polkelections.com/

(R) = 160K       (D) = 155K

NPA and others = 128K

I tend to hope there will be a lot of anyone but Trump voters
among the NPAs but I would hate to live on the difference.

16. Our party needs to fight hard against any voter suppression efforts

since they are going to try and purge as many Dem registrations as possible using shady tactics targeting certain types of voters.

18. Not trying to throw cold water on this but...

Florida is a swing state with a closed primary and Trump is running unopposed (realistically) so what's to say republicans aren't re-registering as democrats to throw a wrench into the works? Does anyone have stats on who the new registered democrats are? Are they converts from the republicans or genuinely new voters?

21. These are my Florida Democrats!



In my red county, we are working hard to register voters and get them to sign up for vote by mail.

Our Democratic Women's Club, which I helped found and just finished my term as president, has gained nearly 30 new members this year. This is huge for our county.

We are pissed of, fired up and ready to go!
