New Florida Registration Data

Ballot Access News

All political parties except the Democratic Party increased their share of the registration, relative to the previous tally, which was as of July 20, 2020. The percentage of independent voters declined.

The new percentages: Democratic 36.72%; Republican 35.79%; Independent Party 1.13%; Libertarian .27%; Green .051%; Constitution .017%; Reform .0102%; Party for Socialism & Liberation .008%; Ecology .0063%; independent and miscellaneous 25.99%.

The percentages in July 2020 were: Democratic 37.20%; Republican 35.47%; Independent Party .91%; Libertarian .25%; Green .047%; Constitution .015%; Reform .0099%; Party for Socialism & Liberation .006%; Ecology .0056%; independent and miscellaneous 26.08%.

The Florida registration form lists a checkbox for the Democratic and Republican Parties, and for “no party affiliation”. Below that is a blank line if anyone wishes to register into any other party, qualified or not. The registration form does not list the qualified parties. It says if the applicant wishes to see a list of the qualified parties, to see the Secretary of State’s website, but anyone who does so will not find the list of qualified parties unless they know to choose the link “candidates and committees.”
