As GOP voter advantage grows, Florida Democrats launch $1M registration effort

Democrats losing registration ground to Republicans, no party affiliates.

With the gap between registered Republicans and Democrats growing in Florida, Democrats are planning a million-dollar campaign to register voters, along with a tour in August.

The Florida Democratic Party launched the Take Back Florida Tour, with plans to stop in 18 counties in August to register voters and boost vote-by-mail requests as well.

Democratic Chair Nikki Fried will head up the tour, which will stop in 18 counties, including Broward, Collier, Duval, Escambia, Gilchrist, Hernando, Hillsborough, Jefferson, Lee, Leon, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm Beach, Pinellas, Santa Rosa, Seminole, St. Lucie and Volusia.

The party is planning to spend $1 million on voter registration efforts, including grants to local Democratic committees.

Democrats continue to lose Florida registered voters in large numbers, expanding a widening gap with the Florida Republicans, who in 2021 took the lead in voter registration for the first time in more than a century.

According to Florida Division of Election records, Democrats had 4,721,471 active registered voters in June, compared to 5,263,269 Republican active registered voters – a difference of 541,798.

There were 14,182,364 active registered voters listed on Florida voter rolls in June.

In February, News 6 reported that Democrats lost 331,810 between October 2020 and November 2022, at a time when Republicans gained 108,382 voters and no party affiliate voters in Florida increased by 239,699.

In our analysis, News 6 found 275,384 Democrats in that period left the party to join another party or become an NPA voter.
