CARSON CITY — The number of registered voters in Nevada increased last month, with Republicans adding more new voters to their rolls than Democrats but unaffiliated voters outpacing both parties.
Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske reported Tuesday that 36,846 more active registered voters were added to the state's rolls in August. Of those, 11,746 registered as nonpartisan voters; 11,441 registered as Republicans and 9,274 registered as Democrats.
Statewide, Democrats make up 38% of Nevada's active voters, while Republicans make up 33% and nonpartisan voters make up 23%.
Overall, there are nearly 1.7 million active registered voters in Nevada.
Inactive registered voters are voters who generally do not have a current address on file with their county election office, but they are still eligible to cast ballots.
