For First Time, Libertarian Registration in Nevada Exceeds 1%, So Party Need Not Worry About Vote Test

Ballot Access News

On September 5, the Nevada Secretary of State posted the August 31, 2018 voter registration data. For the first time, the Nevada Libertarian Party registration exceeds 1% of the state total. This means the party remains on the ballot, whether it passes the vote test or not. In practice, though, the party always easily passes the 1% vote test, so the practical significance is relatively small. Here is a link to the tally. The Independent American Party, the Nevada affiliate of the Constitution Party, has been above 1% of the registration for many decades. 

Nevada posts totals for active voters and inactive voters. BAN’s practice in reporting registration data has always been to acknowledge only active voter data.
