Nevada is one of a few states left to be called as the presidential election remains undecided two days after Election Day. The state, which has six electoral votes up for grabs, had over 1 million ballots cast by mail or in-person prior to Election Day, surpassing the state's total 2016 turnout. 


According to The Associated Press, Biden has a total of 264 electoral votes, including Arizona, putting him just six votes shy of clinching the 270 votes needed to win the presidency. Trump trails at 214 votes.
