Florida Democrats Continue to Build on Voter Registration Lead

Wed, Sep 14, 2016

Tallahassee, FL — Throughout the 2016 cycle, Florida Democrats have consistently lead Republicans in voter registration efforts. Between January 1st and September 1st, Florida Democrats added more than 221,250 voters to the rolls — 63% of which were Floridians of color.
“As we head into the final months of the presidential campaign, Florida Democrats have managed to once again register tens of thousands more voters than Republicans,” said FDP Executive Director Scott Arceneaux. “Democrats have out-registered Republicans by a 3-to-1 margin with Hispanic voters, a 20-to-1 margin with African American voters, and a 2-to-1 margin among all other minority communities in Florida. Our field team has opened 57 offices throughout the state and has talked to hundreds of thousands of Floridians.”  
“We look forward to building on this grassroots momentum and delivering Florida to the Democratic nominee for the third presidential election in a row.”
