Secretary of State Ross Miller Releases August Voter Registration Numbers
Number of new Non-Partisans exceeds that of Republicans
(Carson City, NV; September 3, 2010) – The number of active registered voters in Nevada grew by 7,882 in August, an increase of .73% statewide. Non-Partisan voters, who make up only 15% of all active registrants in the state, accounted for 29% of the voters registering in August. The 2,249 new Non-Partisans outnumbered the 2,037 newly registered Republicans. The ranks of the Democratic Party grew by 2,617 voters.
The new Online Voter Registration System launched earlier this week gives Clark County residents who are currently unregistered another option for getting signed up as voters. Applicants must have a Nevada state-issued driver’s license or other state ID number. An online voter registration can be completed in just minutes from any computer with internet access. The system was developed in partnership with Clark County and the Department of Motor Vehicles.
The deadline to register to vote by mail for the November 2, 2010 general election is Saturday, October 2. The deadline to register in person is Oct. 12.
