New Florida Registration Data

Ballot Access News

As of mid-April 2021, the number of active registered voters in Florida in each party are: Democratic 5,289,083; Republican 5,184,614; Independent Party 191,199; Libertarian 41,645; Green 7,668; Constitution 3,035; Reform 1,479; Socialism & Liberation 1,275; Ecology 1,034; independent and miscellaneous 3,831,957.

The percentages are: Democratic 36.34%; Republican 35,63%; Independent Party 1.31%; Libertarian .29%; Green .05%; Constitution .02%; Reform .01%; Socialism & Liberation .01%; Ecology .01%; independent and miscellaneous 26.33%.

In October 2020, the percentages were: Democratic 36.72%; Republican 35.79%; Independent Party 1.13%; Libertarian .27%; Green .05%; Constitution .02%; Reform .01%; Socialism & Liberation .01%; Ecology .01%; independent and miscellaneous 25.99%.

Thanks to Timothy Thornburn for help obtaining these numbers. The Florida Secretary of State website posts the Democratic, Republican, and “other” figures every month. But if someone wants the other parties, and the number of independents, the Secretary of State won’t reveal those numbers directly. Instead the Secretary of State’s office mails a floppy disk containing the entire list of registered voters in the state, active and inactive, and one must extract the totals from the disk. The Secretary of State does provide the data directly just before an election, but not at other times.
