Registration deadline for Nevada election
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) -- Time is running out to register to vote in Nevada's general election.
The deadline to register is Tuesday. Early voting begins Saturday.
Figures from the secretary of state's office show Democrats hold about a 90,000 voter registration advantage statewide. In Nevada's population hub of Clark County, the Democratic edge is nearly 127,000 as of Monday with one day to go to sign up voters.
Democrats have been far outpacing Republicans in this battleground state, with President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney both hoping to take Nevada's six electoral votes en route to the White House.
Voter registration is also a big factor in the tight U.S. Senate race between Republican Sen. Dean Heller and Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley. The victor in that race could determine control of the Senate.
