Posted on by & filed under Nevada by the Numbers Blog.

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske reports an increase of 9,445 active registered voters statewide during the month of February 2018 as compared to January 2018.  The total number of active registered voters in Nevada is 1,478,116, an increase of 0.64%.

Democratic Party active registered voters statewide increased by 2,316 (0.41%), and Republican Party active registered voters statewide increased by 4,239 (0.86%).  Nonpartisan active registered voters increased by 2,310 (0.74%), Independent American Party active registered voters increased by 428 (0.66%), and Libertarian Party of Nevada active registered voters increased by 134 (0.94%).  Active registered voters from a compilation of “other” minor political parties increased by 18 (0.11%).

Of the 1,478,116 active registered voters in Nevada:

• 570,083 are Democrats (38.57%);

• 496,429 are Republicans (33.59%);

• 315,731 are Nonpartisan (21.36%);

• 65,452 are members of the Independent American Party (4.43%);

• 14,456 are members of the Libertarian Party of Nevada (0.98%); and

• 15,965 are members of other minor political parties (1.08%).

As noted by Jon Ralston over at the NV Independent:

“The Democrats still have more than a 4 percent lead statewide – 57,000 voters. But that number compares unfavorably to the same time in 2014, when the lead was 63,000, and the last time Reid was on the ballot, also on off year, when it was just under 64,000. They also have lost more than 30,000 off the lead they had on Election Day ’16, the year that Nevada was a blue oasis in a national red sea.”
