CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada has tens of thousands of fewer active voters than it did in January.

The Secretary of State’s office says 57,241 voters were moved from the list of active voters in February as county clerks continued their cleanup of registrations.

People who haven’t voted in two successive elections are deemed inactive, though they are still eligible to vote.

According to the latest figures released Monday, Democrats outnumber Republicans statewide by 63,500. In 2010, the Democratic advantage was 100,000.

A breakdown shows 41 percent of Nevada’s active voters are registered as Democrat and 35 percent as Republican.

About 18 percent are nonpartisan, 5 percent are members of the American Independent Party, and the rest are affiliated with other minor political parties.
