The State Election Board has released the most recent voter registration statistics that break down the voter growth in Oklahoma.

Election officials say that overall there was an increase of more than 175,000 registered voters since November 1, 2018, and that more than 77,000 of those registrations have been since January 15 of 2022.

The reports showed that registered Republicans now make up 51.19 percent of Oklahoma’s registered voters, while Democrats make up 29.95 percent of registered voters. The Election Board says it is the first time that official voter registration statistics show Democrats at less than 30 percent of registered voters. Independents make up the third largest group of registered voters with 18 percent, while Libertarians continue to increase voter registration numbers with 0.86 percent.

“We’re excited to see the overall voter registration trend moving upward in Oklahoma. Now, we want to see all registered voters take the next step – exercise their right and get out and vote this November,” said Paul Ziriax, Secretary of the State Election Board.
