CARSON CITY — Democrats in Nevada continued to outpace their Republican counterparts in voter registration efforts in July, the Secretary of State’s office reported this week.
Democrats registered 8,121 active voters, while Republicans registered 3,705 active voters. Active registered nonpartisans increased by 4,946 during the same time period.
Of the 1,096,782 active registered voters statewide, 41.1 percent, or 451,066, are Democrats, 36.7 percent, or 402,471, are Republicans, and 16.5 percent, or 180,366, are nonpartisans. The remainder belong to minor parties.
The new numbers come as the Nevada Republican Party announced last week that the Republican National Committee is giving it $166,000 to intensify the party’s registration efforts ahead of the November general election.
The latest voter registration totals, released Thursday, also show that five critical state Senate districts up for grabs in November remain split, with three continuing to favor Democrats and two favoring Republicans.
