Voters roll sees jump in new registrations in Jefferson County

Posted

Nearly 700 Jefferson County residents have registered to vote since June 1, according to a voters roll obtained from the Jefferson County Elections Division.

A review of the voters roll shows that more people under the age of 30 registered to vote after June 1 through the first week of September than the number of 29-or-younger voters who registered from Jan. 1 through the end of May.

Approximately 176 people 29 or under in Jefferson County have registered to vote since June 1.

That cohort of 176 newly registered voters between the ages of 18-29 was larger than the number of newly registered voters between 30-39 (101 new voters); 40-49 (80 new voters); and 50-59 (95 new voters).

Other takeaways from the Jefferson County voters roll: Women outnumber men in the number of active voters.

Women comprise roughly 52 percent of the county’s voters, while men make up 47 percent (percentages do not include voters who did not identify a gender when registering to vote).

More women than men have registered to vote since June 1 (51.4 percent vs. 48.5 percent).

Most of the newly registered voters live in Port Townsend (336), followed by Port Ludlow (117), Port Hadlock (89), Quilcene (38), and Brinnon (32).

Residents can register to vote up to, and on, Election Day, Tuesday Nov. 3.
