New voter registration numbers were released today. More than 23 percent of California voters have registered without a party preference. That’s an all time high for the state and an increase of more than 640,000 people compared to September of 2010.
There are nearly 18 million people registered to vote in California. The Democratic Party still dominates, being claimed by more than 43 percent of voters. The Republican Party comes in just above the no-party-preference voters with 28 percent.
Voters registered with several minor parties as well. Among them the American Independent party garners about 3 percent of voters. The Green and Libertarians parties each got about .6 percent of voters.
