Working voters

The Nevada AFL-CIO says it has registered more than 200,000 voters in union households in preparation for the 2014 election.

“At current count, there are 211,642 identified union workers, household members, or retirees registered to vote in Nevada,” the group said in a prepared statement. “Union voter registration varies by district, with state Assembly District 3 containing 22 percent union voters, state Senate District 9 containing 17 percent, and [U.S. House] District 3 containing 16 percent.”

According to the Nevada Secretary of State's office, the most recent count shows there are 1,261,337 active voters in the state, so the union voters—if they turn out—make up 17 percent of the electorate.
