Democrats pull ahead of GOP in voter registration

Nevada Democrats say they have doubled the Democratic voter registration advantage in the month of October.

The party now holds an 8,600 voter registration advantage statewide, up from a 4,100 advantage in September. This is the first sustained voter registration advantage for Nevada Democrats in 15 years, according to a press release from the party.

Official says excitement over the Jan. 19th presidential caucus continues to build an advantage in key districts such as Congressional District 3 in Las Vegas, where the Democratic edge increased from 6,300 in September to 7,500 in October.

“Democrats have been building a majority in the state over the past several months, but October’s voter registration numbers are a strong indication that Democrats in Nevada are truly energized for the Jan. 19 caucus,” said Democratic Party Chairwoman Jill Derby. “The excitement should be even greater after next week’s nationally televised Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas.”
