A general election was held in the U.S. state of Nevada on November 3, 2020.[2] To vote by mail, registered Nevada voters must ensure each ballot is postmarked by November 3 and received by November 10, 2020.[3]

Federal offices

President of the United States

Incumbent Republican President Donald Trump was challenged by Democratic nominee Joe Biden in 2020.[2] Prior to election day, news outlets and polls predicted Nevada to have a slight lean towards Biden. Nevada has six electoral votes in the Electoral College.[4]

U.S. House of Representatives

Nevada has four congressional districts that elect four delegates to the U.S. House of Representatives.[2] Since the 2016 elections, three representatives have been Democratic.

State offices

State Senate

10 of the 21 seats of the Nevada Senate were up for election.[2] Democrats have retained a majority control of the senate since 2017.

State Assembly

All 42 seats of the Nevada Assembly were up for election.[2] Democrats have retained a majority control of the assembly since 2017.

Ballot Initiatives

On the ballot were five statewide questions for Nevada Constitution amendments. The first one appears to be rejected while the four other questions are approved.[5]

Question 2 repeals the struck-down same-sex marriage ban, replacing it with a gender-neutral formulation.

State Question 1
