Washoe County Registrar of Voters: County Closely Divided

Posted: Updated:

Washoe County voters continue to register for the November 6th election, and the gap between registered Democrats and Republicans remains narrow, according to the County's Registrar of Voters Dan Burk.

"Washoe County is the most closely divided jurisdiction in Nevada," said Burk. "As of late last week, we have 230,567 registered voters, of which 86,835 are Democrats and 89,443 are Republicans, so it's just a one percent difference."

Burk said the highest number of Washoe County registered voters was 231,400 for the 2008 General Election and this year's final number will be near or exceed that record.

"We'll be fairly close to that number," said Burk. "Application forms are available at the libraries and most post offices to register by mail, online at
www.RegisterToVoteNV.gov and through outside agencies like the DMV and Nevada State Welfare Offices through October 6th.. And people can still register or make a change to an existing registration in person in person at the Registrar of Voters office, located at the County Administration complex at the corner of Ninth Street and Wells until October 16th."
