(Sean Whaley/Nevada News Bureau) – Democrats continue to out-register their Republican counterparts, with the latest data from Clark County now showing a 100,000 voter advantage as the deadline to participate in the Nov. 6 general election draws ever closer.
Today just before noon the Clark County website, which updates registration totals regularly, showed 346,703 Democrats registered to vote compared to 246,479 for Republicans, a 100,224 advantage.
Nonpartisans totaled 132,529 and other minor parties totaled 41,910 for a total registered population of 767,621 in Clark County.
Early voting will begin in just a little more than a month.
The consistent outpacing of Democrats over Republicans in the voter registration race could spell trouble for the GOP from the presidential race on down to state Legislative races.
In addition to the presidential contest between President Obama and GOP challenger Mitt Romney, an important Senate seat pitting U.S. Sen. Dean Heller, R-Nev., against Rep. Shelley Berkley, D-Nev., is at stake.
