The estimated number of people that are registered to vote in this presidential election is 15,015,700. This is approximately 78% of the state’s population that is of voting age.

Although registration is only the first step and isn’t anywhere near everything that needs to be considered and doesn’t really predict voter turnout in November, this is still over 777,000 more people than were registered for the March primaries.

This increase is especially meaningful after a federal appeals court made the decision that the Voting Rights Act was being violated by state laws. The law was weakened and now is not violating anything.

Hopefully voter turnout will match the count of registered voters, or at least increase with it, especially with the absolute insanity of the election at this point.

Make sure to go out and vote this November!
