Boost in Voter Turnout for this ELECTION?

... or is the reason for the increase in voter registration more to do with the referendum on electoral reform? That would be my guess and if that's true, then you can bet a certain number of the newcomers are registering to vote for BC-STV, not to retain the current system.

It wouldn't make sense otherwise. That is, if you're registering so you can vote in the referendum, and not necessarily to vote for a candidate, then you won't be doing it because you want to retain a system which likely turned you off in the first place.
