Hispanic Voter Registration in Florida, 2008-2012
Since 2008, the number of Hispanic registered voters has increased by 195,365, or 14.4%. This increase in Hispanic voters has coincided with an increase in Independents.
Since 2008, nearly as many Hispanic voters have registered as Independents as have registered as Democrats or Republicans combined—96,296 for the former and 96,954 for the latter. And there are now more Hispanics registered as Independents in Florida
than as Republicans, which was not the case in 2008.
