Sarasota County Becomes Redder Than Ever


Republican voter registration dominance continues to grow over Democrats in Sarasota County and the state of Florida.

In Sarasota County at the beginning of this year, Republicans had pushed up to a 52,987 registered voter lead over Democrats. But as of the end of June, that difference had expanded to a 57,036-voter advantage in just six months.

That 4,049-voter difference represents a 7.6% expansion of our lead just since January.

We said right after the huge election successes in the November 2022 Midterms that we were going to immediately shift back to voter registration emphasis. There can be no resting on our laurels and this diligence, combined with our tireless volunteers, continues to pay off.

And our local successes play directly into the Republican Party of Florida's continually expanding voter-registration advantage over the Florida Democratic Party.

The GOP had 5,263,269 registered voters as of June 30, while the Democratic Party had 4,721,471, according to the Florida Division of Elections. 

That 541,798-voter edge was up from a 496,150-voter advantage at the end of May.

Thank you to everyone for your ongoing efforts to keep Sarasota County a solidly conservative Republican county. 

Jack Brill is chairman of the Republican Party of Sarasota County.
