Okay, so sometimes this diary will be daily, but the problem is that Washoe County sometimes runs late on their updates.  In any case, here are the latest figures out of Nevada, which are very strong by the way.  Woo hoo!

For these 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 119,908 (49.70%)
Reps 77,209 (32.00%)
Inds 44,133 (18.29%)

TOTAL 241,250

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

Dems +14,422
Reps +9,655
Inds +5,829

It was a nice recovery for our side.  Republicans got to within about 3,700 votes in the last daily report.  Here, Democrats bested Republicans by about 4,800 votes.  Our numbers went up and their numbers went down.  

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

Dems 135,721 (49.09%)
Reps 91,172 (32.98%)
Inds 49,564 (17.93%)

TOTAL 276,457

As of this report, 32.46% of the 851,803 active voters in Clark County have voted.  2012 turnout is still running about 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 in a very solid position in Nevada's most populous county.

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

Here are the cumulative early voting numbers:

Dems 25,433 (42.48%)
Reps 24,235 (40.48%)
Inds 10,204 (17.04%)

TOTAL 59,872

Here are the new early votes since the last report:
Dems +2,991
Reps +2,833

Democrats outstripped Republicans in early votes for the third straight day in Washoe County.  In the last report, we edged the Republicans by only a handful of ballots, but in this one we bested them by about 160 ballots.  This is welcome news for a county in which Republicans actually outnumber Democrats by about 1,000 active voters.

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

Dems 29,507
Reps 28,488
Inds 11,859

TOTAL 69,854

As of now, this constitutes 28.93% of the 241,459 active voters in Washoe County.

Overall, the numbers are better today than they were in the last report.  Statewide, taking into account all early voting and mail-in ballots, Democrats lead Republicans 45% to 37%.  In reality, Democrats lead Republicans among active voters by about seven percentage points, so we are still overperforming our actual advantage slightly.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
