Eligibility (67% eligible to vote)
Nevada gained statehood in October 1864, one of two states to join the Union during the Civil War. In the 1864 election, Nevada ended up with an anomalous two electoral votes, when the third elector was snowbound. Since the new state’s legislature had not yet convened, there was no mechanism to select a replacement. The state had three electoral votes through 1980. The population of the Silver State has more than tripled since 1980, including 35% growth between 2000 and 2010, bringing its number of electoral votes to six.

Nevada has 6 Electoral College votes to cast in Presidential elections.
