Clark County Voter Registration Rises in Mid-2011
According to a report from Applied Analysis, new voter registrations in Clark County rose during the second quarter of 2011, an occurrence likely due to the lead up of municipal elections in June. Additionally, there has been a downward trend in Democrat registrations, which has come largely at the expense of rising interest to register as Non-Partisan. At the time of this report, active registered voters were divided in Clark County with 45.5 percent registered Democrat, 32.7 percent Republican and the remaining split between Non-Partisan and other parties.

Carson City Schools Save Money Through Green Efforts
The Carson City School District (CCSD) has used the Nevada State Office of Energy’s (NSOE) Schools Program to install new LED and Super T-8 fluorescent lighting at three schools. This change will save the school district almost $80,000 in energy costs annually. Additionally, as a separate project, CCSD has almost completed work on two megawatts of photovoltaic solar panels in various schools throughout the district. The panels are expected to save $500,000 annually in energy costs with a return on investment in only 2.8 years. NSOE’s $9.5 million Schools Program was funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
