It appears a bunch of people took advantage of Florida's extended voter registration deadline following Hurricane Matthew. According to the Tampa Bay Times, over 108,000 people registered to vote during the extension.
Despite the hurricane, Florida Gov. Rick Scott initially refused to extend the registration deadline. The state's Democratic party successfully sued him to extend voter registration by a week.
