PA GOP Makes Historic Gains in Voter Registration

243,139 New Voters Since 2015 Election

HARRISBURG – The Republican Party of Pennsylvania has welcomed 243,139 new voters to its ranks since the November 2015 election, according to the latest numbers from the Pennsylvania Department of State. The surge in Republican registrations is nearly twice the number of newly registered Republicans compared to both the 2008 and 2012 numbers combined.

In addition, 97,607 Democrats have switched to the Republican Party since the beginning of this year, compared to Democrats’ 38,020 new party switchers.

“Enthusiasm is clearly on the side of the Republican Party of Pennsylvania this year,” Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Rob Gleason said. “Republicans are making historic gains in voter registration in the Keystone State. As the last-minute registrations are processed, we’re confident we will see our Party grow even larger.

“Now, it is time to turn Republicans’ voter registration momentum into victory for Donald Trump and our entire Republican ticket this November.”
