-- Voters in the state of Nevada are heading to the polls on Election Day 2016.
There are six electoral votes at stake in Nevada in the presidential race. Nevada allows early voting.
Nevada is known for holding the first-in-the-West caucuses for Republicans and Democrats. The Silver State is closely watched as a bellwether for the Hispanic vote. In 2016, Hispanics accounted for eight percent of Republican caucus-goers and two in 10 Democratic caucus-goers.
Nevada has been on something of a winning streak, having picked the president for the last nine elections, dating back to Ronald Reagan's first term. The last time the state broke with the national trend was in 1976, when it voted for the incumbent, Gerald Ford, instead of Jimmy Carter.
