(Carson City, NV; December 3, 2012) – Nearly 1.3 million Nevadans are registered as active voters at the end of November 2012. The increase in active voter registration totals since the close of registration for the November 6 general election is due in large part to the number of inactive voters who cast ballots and automatically became active voters according to federal and state law.

Of the 1,299,126 active registrants statewide, 42.1% (546,903) are Democrats, 34.44% (447,406) are Republicans, 17.48% (227,151) are Non-Partisans, 4.66% (60,590) are members of the Independent American Party, and the remaining 1.32% (17,076) are members of the Libertarian or other minor parties.

At the close of registration on October 16 for the general election, 1,257,621 Nevadans were active registered voters.
