CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Nevada Democrats registered more than twice as many voters in July than Republicans.
New figures released Thursday by the secretary of state's office show Democrats registered 8,121 active voters last month, compared with 3,705 voters registered by Republicans.
During the same period, 4,946 voters registered as nonpartisan.
The latest numbers give Democrats a 48,595 statewide voter registration advantage over the GOP with three months until the November election.
The Republican National Committee last week said it was giving $166,000 to the state party to try to bolster GOP voter drive efforts in Nevada, a battleground state viewed as key to determining who wins the White House and which party will control the U.S. Senate.
