LAS VEGAS (AP) — Voters in swing state Nevada will play an outsized role Tuesday when they decide whether Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump should get their six coveted electoral votes.
They’ll also weigh in on a highly competitive race to replace Sen. Harry Reid that could determine which party holds the Senate majority.
Nearly 53 percent of Nevada’s 1.5 million active registered voters have already weighed in through in-person early voting or absentee ballots. Democrats have a six-point lead over Republicans in early voting turnout, but Republicans think they can overcome that deficit on Election Day, when they traditionally outperform Democrats.
Democrats hope anti-Trump sentiment will motivate voters who will also help them clinch two competitive U.S. House seats in Nevada.
