    Someone asked me yesterday if women have surged relative to men in North Carolina's voter registration rolls since the Dobbs v. Jackson decision on June 24 overturning Roe v. Wade.

    Short answer: no.

    According to data from the North Carolina State Board of Elections, there was a net increase of 18,274 female voter registrations and 16,302 male registrations from the May 17 primary through June 25 (53.1 percent female). Those numbers include same-day registrations from the primary that were not added to voter rolls until after the primary.

    From June 25 through August 20, there was an increase of 10,328 female registrations and 9,342 male registrations (52.3 percent female).

    As a baseline, women are 54.0 percent of all voter registrations in North Carolina that have sex listed.

    Caveat: The influence of the May 17 primary on registrations makes an apples-to-apples comparison tricky.
