Voters in Pima County have yet again set a record for registration ahead of this year's election.
The Pima County Recorder's office announced the county added more than 34,000 new voters. That's an increase of almost 7% between the August cut-off date for the primary election and the October cut-off for the general election.
Countywide totals, between those dates, show an 8% increase in registered Democrats and a 5% Republican. Of the 34,000 new voters in Pima County, nearly 21,000 are from Congressional District 2, which adds up to an 6% increase in our district. Eight thousand of those new voters registered as Democrats, 5,000 as Republican and 7,000 registered with another party.
The data also shows a record number of Arizonans waited until the final day to register online. According to the Arizona Department of Transportation, more than 45,000 would-be voters signed up to vote on Monday through the ServiceArizona website.
