Nevada Democrats are outpacing Republicans in voter registrations for a third consecutive month.

According to the Nevada Secretary of State's office, the number of active registered Democrats increased by 8,623 in June, while Republicans added 5,830 to their rolls. Nonpartisan registration grew by 3,502 in June.

Nevada Democratic Party Communication Director Helen Kalla says voter registration numbers are critical to the party's success in the November election.

Kalla credits the numbers to a dramatic increase in volunteers and Democrats working with high schools to register voter-aged students.

Voter registration deadlines for the general election are in October.
