Energized By The Election - Or Not

The Sun/Flier's ExploreHoward blog says voter registration in Howard is up 4.6 percent since the last presidential election four years ago, mainly because of a surge by Democrats.

Democratic registration increased by 8.8 percent during that time period, to slightly more than 83,000, while Republican decreased by 4 percent, to about 54,800. The number of independent voters remained about the same.

The figures mirror a statewide trend over the past four years.

Voter registration will close Oct. 14.
