Miller Reminds Nevadans of October 4th Registration Deadline

(Carson City, NV; October 1, 2008) – Secretary of State Ross Miller today reported new figures for the number of registered voters in Nevada through and including September 30, 2008. The latest tally is 1,395,484 total voters (both active and inactive). The new total includes 598,584 Democrats and 504,857 Republicans. The new number of total voters is an increase of 4.8% of the total at the end of August, 2008. Registration totals for September, 2004 are not available. Following the close of registration in late October, final registration tallies will be released with comparative numbers from 2004.

“It’s very important to remember that the approaching deadlines for registration are just days away,” said Miller. “This Saturday, October fourth, is the postmark deadline for registering by mail, and an October fourteenth is the deadline for registering in person. We’ve had record registration, but I know there are still a lot of eligible Nevadans who can register and participate. With Nevada’s swing state status Nevadans should have more incentive than ever before to get involved in the election.”

A full breakdown of registered voters by county and political party is available on the Secretary of State’s website, The Secretary of State’s office will continue to report voter registration statistics on a monthly basis by posting the figures on the first business day of every month. Nevadans who wish to check their voter registration status, or sign up for the “Please Don’t Call List” can visit the Secretary of State’s election website at

The registration totals posted by the Secretary of State’s office do not necessarily reflect the final total of voters eligible to participate in the presidential general election. The confirmation process by the Secretary of State and by respective county registrars will confirm the status of each registered voter, and will most likely result in a change in the number of general-eligible voters
