(The Center Square) – Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden is leading incumbent Republican President Donald Trump in Nevada, according to preliminary election results.
Data from Nevada Secretary of State Barbara K. Cegavske’s office shows Biden holding a 49.3% lead over President Trump, who has 48.7% of the votes. Biden’s lead is currently less than 8,000 total votes.
Nevada’s Election Division said early Wednesday morning that there would be no more “election results updates until 9:00 am on Nov. 5.”
The division said it still needs to count mail-in ballots that were received on Tuesday, “mail ballots that will be received over the next week,” and provisional ballots.
Nevada has six electoral votes that are at stake in the race.
Clark County and communities around the Las Vegas Valley have overwhelmingly voted in favor of Biden, early returns indicated. Washoe County and the Reno, Nev. area are also favoring the former vice president.
Rural counties like Elko, Humboldt, White Pine, and Nye are Republican-leaning counties that are favoring President Trump.
The presidential race in Nevada has yet to be called as of Tuesday night.
This is a developing story.
