I-4 Votes Project Data
Florida is the very definition of a toss-up state. According to the latest counts by the State’s Division of Elections, Democratic Party registrations outnumber Republican registrations 37% to 35%, but the opinions and life experiences of the more than 3.5 million unaffiliated voters in the state – 27% of all voters – will be the ones who shape the conversation right up to Election Day.
For the past several presidential elections, Florida, with its nearly equal mix of Republicans, Democrats and Independents, has been seen as one of the nation’s top swing states. And voters in the I-4 Corridor and the surrounding region represent it better than anywhere else. We will spend time explaining what this idea of being a swing state means, and how the region’s growth is affecting individual attitudes.
