The total number of registered voters for the April 22nd primary may set a record for Pennsylvania. As counties continue processing voter registration forms the total number of eligible voters is just 50,000 shy of the record set for the 2004 presidential race. This is only a primary mind you, so this is significant. As of today the total number of voters is 8,320,000. 4.2 million of those are Democrats and Bucks County has joined Montgomery as Philadelphia ring counties which now have Democratic voter registration majorities. The challenge now is to keep these new Democrats Democratic for the fall, at least in the voting booth.
Democrats now outnumber Republicans statewide by a million.
Update: The Montgomery County Democratic Committee has announced their final numbers and there is now a 9,401 person Democratic majority in Montco. That's a swing of 40,115 since last November, an impressive accomplishment.
