Oklahoma voter rolls grow as General Election nears

Thursday, October 02, 2014

(Oklahoma City) – The State Election Board’s latest voter registration statistics show more than 2,014,000 Oklahomans are registered to vote – a net increase of more than 35,000 since Jan. 15, State Election Board Secretary Paul Ziriax said Wednesday.

The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 4 General Election is Friday, Oct. 10.

As of Sep. 30, 2014, Oklahoma had 2,014,353 registered voters:

DEMOCRATS                      882,778……43.8%

REPUBLICANS                   877,678……43.6%

AMERICANS ELECT                     8……N/A

INDEPENDENTS                253,889……12.6%

The statistics show a net increase in registered Republicans and Independents since January and a net decrease in the number of registered Democrats.

Democrats narrowly remain the largest percentage of Oklahoma voters at 43.8 percent, but the percentage of voters registered as Republicans (43.6 percent) and Independents (12.6 percent) continues to grow. The two major political parties are closer to parity than at any time since the State Election Board began compiling statewide voter registration statistics in 1960.
