2023 Election: PA Voter Registration Numbers

Now that voter registration has come to a close for the 2023 municipal elections, it’s time to take a look at the makeup of Pennsylvania’s 67 counties.

According to the Pennsylvania Department of State figures from October 23, Democrats continue to hold an advantage in registration over Republicans in the Commonwealth. There are 3.897 million registered Dems (45.0%) to 3.451 million registered GOP voters (39.9%). There are 952,707 registered voters with no affiliation (11.0%) and 345,397 voters registered with a myriad of other parties.

There have been 43,274 new online applications and 39,455 online change applications. Of those 82,729 apps, 47 percent have been for Democrats and 31.5% for Republicans.

Republicans have been the beneficiary of those leaving the Democrat or other party ranks, as the GOP has picked up 31,148 Dems and 18,248 others. Democrats have gained 14,188 former members of the GOP and 17,013 others.

55-to-64 year olds are the largest voter registration age group with 1.502 million. 25-to-34 years olds (1.442m) and 35-to-44 years olds (1.390m) are second and third, respectively. The youngest generation – 18-to-24 years olds – are at the bottom with 681,268 registered to vote.

Among that latter group, Dems hold a 58-42% registration lead, while among the oldest groups (55+), Republicans hold a 50.8-49.2% advantage.

Below is a county-by-county breakdown.

  1. I meant to change my affiliation to Republican just so I had a voice against the front runner in that primary.

  2. As I read this article it becomes ever more clear that every voting age American should watch the documentary, Unfit.

  3. I’d love to see how the #’s and %’s of registered independents and others have changed.

  4. As in the lyrics by The Doors – they’ve got the guns but we got the numbers. Also true is that they’ve got the gerrymandered districts but we got the numbers.
    The “numbers” hardly matter when the rules of the game are stacked in favor of the minority.
    Minority rule is tyranny and disfunction

  5. It would be interesting to see a county by county breakdown in the % change since the 2020 election.

    1. It’s wild. County numbers are down across the board. There were 9.09 million registered voters in PA in 2020. It’s down to about 8.6 million now. Dems are losing voters way faster than Republicans, so in terms of percentages, Republicans are gaining on Dems, but both parties lost voters overall.
