CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada has 50,607 fewer registered voters because of routine cleanup of county voter rolls.

The secretary of state’s office on Thursday reported that as of the end of December Democrats still hold a large lead over Republicans in voter registration, but the margin has narrowed to 77,636. A year ago Democrats topped GOP registrations by about 100,000.

Of the nearly 1.2 million active voters in Nevada, 41 percent are Democrats and 41 percent are Republicans. Nearly 18 percent are registered as nonpartisan. The rest are affiliated with minor political parties.
