OKLAHOMA CITY - The number of Oklahoma's registered voters increased nearly 5.5 percent in the past year, with Republicans continuing their decades-long trend of showing the most growth, state election officials said Tuesday.
Democrats still outnumber Republicans, but their lead continues to shrink. Republicans showed a more than 3-to-1 net increase over Democrats in the past year.
The annual check of voter registration data on Jan. 15 shows that Oklahoma had about 2.1 million registered voters, an increase of 115,576 from a year ago.
The Republican Party picked up the most voters, followed by independents and the Democrat Party. Democrats still have the largest share of registered voters - 45.5 percent - compared with 42.4 percent for Republicans and 12.1 percent for independents.
