According to voter registration statistics from the State Board of Elections, as of September 9, the number of unaffiliated voters now exceed the number of Republicans by 55 voters.
According to this data, there are 2,055,548 unaffiliated voters on North Carolina’s voter rolls compared to 2,055,493 registered Republicans.
Civitas Elections Analyst Susan Myrick said, “We have been anticipating this shift since July 18, when we reported that the number of registered unaffiliated voters in North Carolina threatened to surpass the number of registered Republicans. It is imperative to not misinterpret this shift as reflective of a problem for Republicans. On the contrary, it is North Carolina’s Democrats who should be concerned. They are the only segment of the voter registration rolls to have decreased since 2009, when Democrats made up 45.7 percent of the voter rolls. Today they are at just 38.9 percent of the total voter registration.”
