AUSTIN — Women have been registering to vote at a faster pace than men in Texas while people with Hispanic surnames represent about one fourth of the newly registered voters across the state. That’s according to an analysis of new voter information done by a veteran Republican data consultant.

Derek Ryan, a database and demographic consultant for numerous Republican campaigns and a former Database Director for the Republican Party of Texas, dug into the voter lists to produce a five-page report on gender, the Hispanic population, and totals by Congressional and Texas Senate districts.
Ryan’s report shows that nearly 20,000 more women have registered than men, people with a Hispanic surname make up nearly one fourth of the newly registered voters, and the average age of new registrants is right around 36 years old, with 43% of them being under the age of 30.
