The excitement over the presidential election is past, but Arizona’s voter-registration numbers continue to climb.
From last November’s election through April 1, voter registration rose by more than 100,000 people, or 3.4 percent, according to figures from the Arizona Secretary of State.
In all, Arizona had 3,087,996 voters.
Republicans continue to dominate the voter rolls, with 1,137,262 voters, but the party posted the smallest percentage gain, up 1.7 percent.
Democrats were next, with 1,046,140 voters, up 2.3 percent.
The largest percentage gain was among Libertarians, who posted an 11.6 percent gain in registration, for a total of 20,256 voters.
The Green Party, which gained ballot status last year, boosted its numbers 5 percent, to 4,210 voters.
Voters who are unaffiliated with any party continue to be the third-largest voting group in Arizona, with 880,128 voters, a 6.8 percent gain from November.
Secretary of State Ken Bennett said the numbers show strong growth, and his office will continue to do voter outreach even though this is a non-election year.
