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%

TOTAL      15,213

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



Total votes: 14

I wonder how many of these new voter registrations reflect students who have started school and registered to vote, because presumably they're offset by an equal (or slightly smaller) number of students who have left the area. Of course, given that one is required to register to vote but isn't required to unregister upon leaving the area, it's likely impossible to tell.
