New California Registration Data
On February 5, the California Secretary of State released new registration data, as of January 5, 2010.
The new figures are: Democratic 44.623%, Republican 30.752%, American Independent 2.261%, Green .659%, Libertarian .499%, Peace & Freedom .326%, Reform .140%, independent and miscellaneous 20.740%.
The last figures released were from May 2009. At the time, those percentages were: Democratic 44.553%, Republican 31.047%, American Independent 2.194%, Green .664%, Libertarian .486%, Peace & Freedom .324%, Reform .146%, independent and miscellaneous 20.587%.
To see the numbers, see here. The Reform Party is not ballot-qualified but the state keeps track of its registrations. However, Sacramento County doesn’t report the number of registrants in the Reform Party, so the Reform Party actually has about 900 more registrants than the official figures show.
The number of registered voters declined since May 2009, due to election officials purging the rolls. The only two parties that actually have more registered voters than they did in May 2009 are the American Independent Party and the Libertarian Party.
