Oregon voter registration statistics for April 2014
Month to month comparison shows a huge surge in people registering as NAV (non affiliate voter – one who elects not to belong to any party) and Independent Party of Oregon voters.
- Of the 14,662 gains in registration, 47.7% registered as NAV and 9.4% registered as IPO. The combined NAV + IPO – which I refer to as the i/Independent voting block- accounts for 57.1% of the increase in registered voters.
- Democratic Party accounted for only 17.3% of the growth, while the Republican Party received 19.1% of the growth. Total Major party new voter share is a meager 36.4%
- Democratic Party continues to lose market share to Republicans. Both losing market share to NAV and IPO, and even to other minor parties.
- IPO now makes up 4.7% of registered voters. Slowly getting to the 5% mark where it becomes a major political party, entitled to all the taxpayer benefits the Democratic and Republican Parties receive.
- Current Voter % total by party:
