Active Voters Increase To Nearly 1.3 Million

CARSON CITY – Nearly 1.3 million Nevadans are registered as active voters as of the end of November, the Secretary of State’s office said today.

The increase of more than 41,000 active voters since the close of registration for the general election was due in large part to the number of inactive voters who cast ballots on Nov. 6 and automatically became active voters according to federal and state law.
