Democrats, GOP Close in Nevada Early Vote Margins

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Nevada Democrats appear to have nearly kept pace with a surge of Republican enthusiasm in early voting, confirming a tight race between Republican Sharron Angle and Majority Leader Harry Reid.

It's clear Republican voters are fired up to deny Reid a fifth term, but Democrats are turning out in significant numbers, too. Preliminary figures show Republicans turned out 37 percent of early voters in traditionally Democratic Clark County, several points above the party's registration.

Democrats there account for about 45 percent of voters but turned out 46 percent of those casting early ballots.

The two weeks of early voting provide a barometer of turnout. But it's far from conclusive with Election Day to come.
