CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada Democrats outpaced Republicans
in new voter registrations leading up to the state primary.

The secretary of state's office Friday reports that from May 1 through May 22 when primary registration closed, Democrats registered 4,322 active voters, compared with 2,254 registered by Republicans. The number of active registered nonpartisans increased by 2,544 during the same time period.

Statewide, Democrats now hold a 38,792 voter advantage over Republicans. But the gap is far less than the 100,000 voter edge Democrats had going into the 2008 general election.

There are 170,769 voters registered as nonpartisan and those voters will play a big role in the outcome of the November elections.

Percentage wise, Democrats account for nearly 41 percent of all active Nevada voters. Republicans make up 37 percent and nonpartisans, 4.5 percent.
