Florida Democrats Outpace Republicans in Voter Registration

By James Call


Tallahassee, FL – Democrats in Florida have increased voter registration at nearly triple the rate of Republicans in Florida this year.

Nearly a quarter of a million new Democratic voters have registered since January.

Rickards High School in Tallahassee, which is located in a typically Democratic district, held a voter registration drive on Tuesday.

"If you don't vote, don't complain," Mayor John Marks told the students.

The registration drive was sponsored by the Voter Coalition of Tallahassee, Florida State University, and Rickards High School.
