Maine’s Secretary of State has finally released voter registration data for November 2006. The results are: Democratic 31.16%; Republican 28.12%; Green 2.95%; independent and other parties, 37.77%.
Back in November 2004, the Maine data was: Democratic 31.17%; Republican 28.07%; Green 2.36%; independent and other parties 38.40%. Thus, between November 2004 and November 2006, major party and independent registration was virtually unchanged, but the Green share increased 25%.
The raw data for November 2006 is: Democratic 308,957; Republican 278,887; Green 29,273; independent and other 374,502.
Green registration is now almost at 3%. No other state Green Party has ever achieved that large a share of the voter registration.
