TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida voter registration is down slightly from two years ago, but the ranks of independent voters have grown since then.
Figures released by the Division of Elections on Monday show Florida has 11,217,384 voters registered for the Nov. 2 election. That's 20,250 fewer than in 2008.
Of the total, 2,186,246 registered without party affiliation - 83,127 more than in 2008.
Both major parties lost registration, but Democrats still top Republicans by about 4.6 million to 4 million. The GOP losses, though, were smaller than the Democrats' and it closed the gap by nearly 66,000 voters.
