California just hit an all-time high record for voter registration with more than 20 million Californians now registered to vote, according to a new report from Secretary of State Alex Padilla.
The only other states that have more registered voters than California are Texas and Florida.
“California’s March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary is less than a year away and Californians are getting ready. With an earlier primary in 2020, California voters will have more influence in the presidential nominating contests for all parties,” Padilla said.
There are now 2,260,513 more registered voters in California than in 2015.
“Voters who have already registered to vote should make sure their voter registration is up to date – including your address, political party, and vote-by-mail preference. With next year’s presidential primary fast approaching, verifying your political party preference is critical,” Padilla added.
Californians can register to vote or update their voter registration online at registertovote.ca.gov and check their voter registration status with their party and vote-by-mail preferences at voterstatus.sos.ca.gov.
According to the report, 8,612,368 registered voters are Democratic and 4,709,851 are Republicans. The rest of the categories include no party preference, American Independent, Green, Libertarian, unknown, and Peace and Freedom.
