Registration update

At just over a year to the next general election – close to the midway point – seemed a useful point to review the party voter registrations in Oregon.

A note: Ind refers to the Independent Party; non-af is nonaffiliated. None that the drops in the interim (which are across the board) are generally explained because of standard records purging.

Month Dem Rep Ind non-af
Aug 909,414 679,934 47,563 423,711
May 907,700 679,624 44,752 419,486
Feb 930,649 692,610 45,358 429,858
Nov 08 931,318 694,589 43,030 429,758


Very stable.

    Very interesting, especially how all categories but R’s show 1700 + increases after the purge, compared to 310 R’s.

    The remarkable increase, seems to me, is in the Independent Party numbers, which only barely ticked downward from Feb-May, and are the only numbers higher in August 09 than in November 08. At this pace, they could reach major party status if they really made an effort to.

    At the rate the Independent Party is going, they will overtake the Democrats in 142 years. That’s quite a pace.
