The new report, required by law, deals with registration numbers as of Dec. 31 — 154 days before the June primary election.

Democrats continue to have the highest proportion of the 17.7 million registered voters, 43.58 percent, but that’s a more than a quarter-percentage point lower than it was a year ago and a full percentage point below what it was four years ago, 154 days before the 2010 primary.
