Final totals from the Orange County Board of Elections for new voter registration through the 10/12 cutoff show the following
D 6,208 40.81%
R 2,071 13.61%
U 6,783 44.59%
L 153 1.01%
of note -- I've been following this here since 1971, and 2012 is the first year that the Ds were not #1 in new voter registration, but also the 13% is a historic low for the Rs.
Will have final totals by November 5 covering those registering during early voting
