As the population continues to grow, the move to a more pluralistic county is projected to tip the balance of power within a generation should trends continue. A similar scenario played out in Orange County, a former conservative enclave turned blue.

According to Official Placer Elections data, Democrat voter registration has outpaced Republican registration in the last decade by a whopping margin. Republicans still retain a sizable, yet dwindling advantage in Placer County. For example, in 2020, despite a resounding election defeat in both national and statewide results, Donald Trump outperformed in Placer County.

Dissatisfaction with both major parties

The voter registration data also shows the biggest percentage change is in in voters not wishing to be associated with either party. Other party preference accounts for nearly 28 percent of registered voters with No Party preference accounting for over 20 percent.

Active Voters

Ryan Ronco, Placer County Clerk-Recorder-Registrar of Voters shared that Placer County has the “6th highest turnout in California in the recall election and the highest turnout for counties over 150,000 registered voters.” He added that Placer County is “historically 10 to 15 percentage points above the California average turnout each major election.”
