Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

I know I posted an earlier diary with the exact same title, but this one includes voting statistics from TODAY.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

For these daily reports, I will only be tracking Clark County and Washoe County.  Together, they account for just shy of 90% of all registered voters in Nevada.

First let's start with the numbers from Clark County:

Here are the cumulative early voting figures:

Dems 105,486 (49.91%)
Reps 67,554 (31.96%)
Inds 38,304 (18.12%)

TOTAL 211,344

Here are the additional early ballots cast since the last daily report:

Dems +13,857
Reps +10,159
Inds +5,766

It was a decent day for Republicans.  The previous two days, Democrats had bested Republicans in the early voting in Clark County by over 5,000 ballots per day.  But we're fine so no worries.

Now, here are the cumulative figures, including mail-in ballots:

Dems 120,330 (49.75%)
Reps 80,519 (32.73%)
Inds 43,332 (17.52%)

TOTAL 244,181

As of this report, 28.7% of the 851,803 active voters in Clark County have voted.  That is huge.  Overall turnout is running about 7-10 points higher percentage-wise than in 2008, although our advantage is not as big as in 2008.  In 2008, for the entirety of the early voting period, Democrats led about 52% to 30% over Republicans in Clark County.  Still, we are still overperforming our actual advantage among registered voters (about 46% to 31%).

Now, let's take a look at Washoe County.

Here are the cumulative early voting numbers:

Dems 22,442
Reps 21,402
Inds 8,745

TOTAL 52,589

Here are the new early votes since the last report:
Dems +2,218
Reps +2,197

Democrats outstripped Republicans in early votes for the second straight day in Washoe County.  Yay!  It was a pretty slow day for early voting though.

Here are the cumulative figures, including mail-in ballots:

Dems 26,830
Reps 26,072
Inds 10,536

TOTAL 63,438

As of now, this constitutes 26.3% of the 241,459 active voters in Washoe County.

Overall, the numbers are fine.  Statewide, taking into account all early voting and mail-in ballots, Democrats lead Republicans 46% to 37%.  In reality, Democrats lead Republicans among active voters by about seven percentage points, so we are overperforming our actual advantage slightly.
