According to voter registration statistics released Monday by the Florida Division of Elections, the number of registered voters in Florida declined by 30,250 from the 2008 election.

However, the number of voters with no party affiliation has increased by 83,127 from two years ago.

Both major parties suffered losses: There are 91,008 fewer voters registered as Democrats and 25,042 fewer voters registered as Republicans.

However, the Democratic Party still claims 591,809 more registered voters in Florida than the Republicans, an advantage that has increased by 307,953 since four years ago, during the last mid-term election.

In fact, all of the numbers are up from four years ago: There are 783,535 more registered voters this year than in 2006, including 222,123 more voters with no party affiliation.
