Results from the 2020 Primary Election in Nevada

You can get ongoing results on election night from just about any television station that reports the news. If you don't want the talking heads and endless "analysis," go to "Election Results Information" from the Washoe County Registrar of Voters.

For Nevada statewide election results with lots of details, go to "Election Reporting by Precinct" from the Nevada Secretary of State. There is a link on this page to election results summary, which shows the big picture without every detail.

Nevada holds Closed Primary Elections

In Nevada, two political parties - Democratic and Republican - are considered major parties for the purpose of conducting elections. Nevada primary elections are "closed," which means if you are registered to vote with a party affiliation of either Democratic or Republican, you may vote only for candidates from your own party and you may also vote in nonpartisan contests. Voters registered with any other party affiliation (or none) may vote only in nonpartisan contests. Ballot questions are not voted on in the primary election.

In the general election in November, all voters get to choose from among all candidates who are running for their local, statewide, and federal offices and on ballot measures.
