Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske reports a decrease of 30,428 active registered voters statewide during the month of September 2019.
The reduction is attributed to routine voter list maintenance performed by the 17 county election officials.
Both Federal law (the National Voter Registration Act and the Help America Vote Act) and state law require election officials to take steps to ensure the voter rolls are accurate and up-to-date, Cegavske’s office said in a news release earlier this month.
The total number of active registered voters in Nevada is 1,548,865, a decrease of 1.93%.
