Here are the latest figures out of Nevada.
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.
Quick non-sequitir: Has anyone been to Tahoe? I find the Tahoe area to be one of the most beautiful areas of the country. And if you don't believe me, go rent the movie "The Deep End" which showcases Tahoe in all its glory.
First let's start with the numbers from Clark County:
Here are the cumulative early voting figures:
Dems 91,629 (50.45%)
Reps 57,395 (31.61%)
Inds 32,538 (17.92%)
Here are the additional early ballots cast since the last daily report:
In the previous daily report, Democrats bested Republicans by 5,202 ballots cast. In this one, Democrats outstripped Republicans by 5,535. In fact, the Republican percentage went down among early voters since the previous report. These are very solid numbers for us in Clark County, especially considering that Romney is contesting Nevada much more vigorously than McCain did four years ago.
Now, here are the cumulative figures, including mail-in ballots:
Dems 105,338 (49.75%)
Reps 69,294 (32.73%)
Inds 37,107 (17.52%)
As of this report, 24.86% of the 851,803 active voters in Clark County have voted. That is huge. At this point in 2008, about 17% of all active voters had voted.
Now, let's take a look at Washoe County.
Here are the cumulative early voting numbers:
Here are the new early votes since the last report:
Republicans had bested us the previous three days, so this is welcome news.
Here are the cumulative figures, including mail-in ballots:
As of now, this constitutes 23.7% of the 241,459 active voters in Washoe County. At this point in 2008, only 15% of the active voters had voted.
