Nevada Voter Registration Increased Slightly In February

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada saw a slight increase in registered voters in February, when more voters signed up as nonpartisan than with any political party.

That's about half a percentage point increase and brings the total number of registered voters to 1,805,554. Nonpartisan registrations grew by 6,264 people.
