When I did the story on Libertarians meeting, I wanted to check on how many there were in town. In October it was two, and as of a week ago it's now three, according to the voter registration data from the Board of Elections. Registration trends this time are less favorable to Democrats than they were last time. Most parties trended negative, I suspect because the Board of Elections is clearing out registered voters who haven't voted in a while.
|Party||Number (Oct 2005)||Number (Jan 2006)||Change|
Again, most parties have lost members, with only the Working Families and Libertarian parties showing an absolute gain - of one each. A lot of blanks came off the rolls, as did many Democrats and somewhat fewer Republicans. The Democratic registration edge over Republicans falls to 200 now from 237 in October.Posted by simon at January 18, 2006 6:18 PM in politics (local)
