LAS VEGAS (AP) — Joe Biden has won Nevada, continuing a 16-year trend of Democrats picking up the Western battleground state.
His victory four days after Election Day gives him Nevada’s six Electoral College votes and denies President Donald Trump a state he hoped to pick up this year after a narrow loss in 2016.
The country had focused on Nevada as it tabulated results, especially in Clark County, which includes Las Vegas and three-quarters of the state’s population.
The state mailed ballots to all active registered voters this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, a move the Trump campaign had challenged.
According to the latest numbers on the State of Nevada’s election website, Biden has received 642,604 votes or 49.91%. Trump has received 616,905 votes or 47.92%.
According to the latest update on Clark County Election Department’s website, Biden received 465,835 votes or 53.74%. Trump received 385,037 votes or 44.41%.
