RENO, Nev. (AP) - Washoe County officials say a record number of voters have registered to vote in the upcoming election.

The 241,400 voters exceed the old record reached in the 2008 presidential election by 10,000.

Republicans hold a tiny lead in registration totals, having just 1,160 more registered voters than Democrats.

Officials on Wednesday said a breakdown shows there are 91,937 Republicans and 90,777 Democrats in Washoe County. Nonpartisan and voters who align with minor political parties total 58,686.

Tuesday was the deadline to register to vote in the November election. Early voting in Nevada begins Saturday.
