“Voter registration numbers for Republicans have decreased since the May primary while some numbers have increased for Democrats and others have waned.
According to statistics compiled by Delaware County, Democrats had 184,328 voters as of Thursday, compared to 182,680 at the end of April. Republicans, in the same time period, reported 161,296 Thursday and 162,182 in April.
“I would say the reason that it’s high is that we are in unusual times,” Colleen Guiney, chairwoman of the Delaware County Democratic Party, said. “We have a Republican administration that is destroying safety nets and the environment. In order for there to be a pushback in the Republican administration, there needs to be a Democratic Congress … Right now, people are registering to vote and they can make a difference.””
