Several factors could shape the upcoming midterm election in Nevada. The Nevada Secretary of State announced earlier this week that there are slightly more than 1.5 million active registered voters, a record-breaking number.

Currently, Democrats are close to having 70,000 more registered voters than Republicans, accounting for a nearly five-point lead. The Silver State could also make history as the first female-majority led statehouse.
