The Florida Secretary of State has closed the books on voter registration for the 2020 Primary and, for the first time this cycle, there is an accurate read of voter registration numbers in Florida.
Democrats have added more voters to the rolls than Republicans in the 2020 election cycle.
In 2018 (as of the October 2018 book closing): Democrats had a 263,000 registration edge over Republicans in Florida.
In 2020 (as of book closing reported today): Democrats have a 280,000 registration edge over Republicans in Florida.
While Florida Democrats have added 17,000 more Democrats to the rolls than Republicans so far this cycle, Florida Democrats are also in the midst of a massive voter registration effort in the state.
- Upon launching voter registration efforts in July of 2019, Democrats were registering 28 voters per day.
- In February 2020, the Florida Democratic Party (FDP) averaged 482 registrations per day
- FDP is currently on pace to collect an additional 150,000 registrations before the start of the general election in August.
