Oklahoma Voter Registrations Surge Before 2020 General Election

Mon, 02 Nov 2020 09:40:34 CST

Oklahoma Voter Registrations Surge Before 2020 General Election Oklahoma's voter registrations have surged ahead of the 2020 General Election, with a net increase of more than 169,000 registered voters since January 15 and a net increase of nearly 53,000 since September 30. The State Election Board's official pre-election voter registration statistics show the total number of registered voters is the largest before a Presidential Election since Oklahoma began tracking pre-election voter registration statistics in 2000.

Oklahoma's voter registration statistics also show that registered Republicans now make up more than 50% of Oklahoma's registered voters for the first time. The last time a majority of voters belonged to an Oklahoma political party prior to a Presidential Election was November 1, 2004, when Democrats made up 51.3% of registered voters.

"The surge in voter registrations is a clear indication that Oklahomans are highly interested in the 2020 General Election. It is a positive sign for higher voter participation this year," said Paul Ziriax, Secretary of the State Election Board. "The new statistics also continue the decades-long growth trend for Republicans and Independents as a percentage of Oklahoma's electorate."
