San Diego County Voter Registration Report

A report on the number of registered voters ...

Out of just more than 1 million people who register as either Democrats or Republicans, the GOP has an 100-person lead. The Republicans have an overall advantage in the unincorporated areas of the county, while Democrats remain dominant when voter registrations from the county’s 18 cities are pooled together.

The registration advantage has seesawed between the two political parties for several years. In San Diego, the county’s largest city, Democrats outnumber Republicans by nearly 75,000 people.

Democrats and Republicans each make up 35% of the population, and those registered as neither make up 30%. It's time to stop subsidizing political parties by paying for their primaries.
