North Carolina voter registration changes tell a vivid story

Which political parties are seeing voter registration declines in North Carolina? Locke’s Andy Jackson has posted this week’s changes:

Democrats:    -2,827

Republicans: -3,320

Libertarians:       -34

Unaffiliated:  -1,351

He notes that the Republican Party is suffering losses in the post-Jan. 6 period.

The well-publicized drop in Republican voter registrations after the January 6 Capital Hill riots has affected North Carolina as well with around 6,000 voters dropping their Republican registrations in the weeks following the riot.

What about the bleed-off from the Republican Party? Andy discusses it with Locke’s Mitch Kokai.
