CARSON CITY (KTNV) — Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed the certificate of ascertainment on Wednesday for the slate of electors for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, as required by federal law.

On Tuesday, the Nevada Supreme Court canvassed and declared the results in the state final. This paved the way for the governor to submit a certificate of ascertainment to the federal government certifying the presidential electors in Nevada for President-elect Joe Biden.

“I want to thank all the election officials and poll workers who helped facilitate this process in our State,” Gov. Sisolak said. “And I want to thank Nevadans for ensuring they made their voices heard during this election cycle. I am honored to complete this certificate of ascertainment to the federal government on behalf of the state of Nevada, and I want to congratulate all those who participated in the democratic process.”

The governor will be issuing certificates of election for and commissioning the winning individual candidates as required by law in the coming weeks, similar to standard timelines completed by previous administrations.
