Currently: 75° — Complete forecast

Republicans maintain small lead in early voting, but no enthusiasm gap detected yet

In Clark County, 8.5 percent of Democrats have turned out while 9.7 percent of Republicans – so that 1.2 percent lead is a slight uptick from the .9 percent lead the GOP had after Monday. No sign of a surge there.

If you add the mail ballot totals, where Democrats lead in Clark by about 1,300, the totals are:

Dems: 10.6 percent

Rs: 12.0 percent

The lead after Monday was 1.2 percent turnout advantage. No huge change.

Add in Washoe early votes to total Clark numbers (no absentee count for Washoe) and totals are:

Dems: 10.0 percent

Rs: 11.1 percent

Still looks like normal midterm differential, with just under a third of the days completed.

First glance at CD3 – combined early/mail:

Ds: 11.0 percent

Rs: 12.3 percent
