3,700 removed from Nevada's voter registration rolls.

LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Secretary of State's office says Nevada's voter registration numbers dropped by about 3,700 last month when voters were moved to inactive status.

Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske said Thursday that Nevada has 1,582,293 million active registered voters. About 38 percent are Democrats and 33 percent are Republican. Nonpartisans make up 22 percent.

Cegavske says the voters were moved to inactive status as part of routine list maintenance.

Inactive voters are those who don't vote in a series of elections or fail to respond to a mailing card asking them to confirm their status. They're still eligible to vote.
