RNC alleges potential violation of National Voter Registration Act in Nevada

In the letter, the RNC alleges, based on their analysis, that Nevada may violate the National Voter Registration Act.

The study compared voter registration records with the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2021 data on the citizen voting-age population.

Voter registration discrepancies in Nevada counties

It revealed that three counties – Douglas, Lyon, and Storey – had over 100 percent voter registration rates, indicating more registered voters than eligible ones.

Additionally, Carson City, Churchill, Clark, Eureka, and Washoe counties showed voter registration rates of 90 percent or more, significantly higher than the national average in recent elections.

Concerns raised over Nevada’s voter roll maintenance, high registration rates

The letter highlighted that these abnormally high registration rates, especially in counties like Clark and Washoe, which include populated cities like Las Vegas, Reno, and Henderson, could indicate that Nevada’s voter rolls are not being adequately maintained.

The RNC stated, “This constitutes strong evidence that Nevada’s voter rolls are not being properly maintained.”
