Democrats have kept Nevada in their column in every presidential election since 2004. In the 2018 midterm election, Democrats delivered a “blue wave, ” flipping a U. S. Senate seat and bolstering their dominance of the congressional delegation and Legislature.

But this year, political strategists and organizers warn Nevada is still a swing state. And it could swing.

“I don’t know where this state goes, ” said Annette Magnus-Marquart, executive director of the Nevada progressive group Battle Born Progress. “Nevada is still a purple state. Nevada is still a battleground. No matter what your party is, you have to fight when you’re running in this state. ”

President Donald Trump, who narrowly lost here in 2016, scheduled a rally Sunday night in Carson City, his second campaign visit to the state in as many months as the first big wave of voting kicks off.

Nevada’s Democrat-controlled state government is automatically mailing ballots to all active registered voters because of the coronavirus pandemic, but in-person voting that started Saturday is typically when most people vote. It's expected to remain a popular choice this year, with long lines forming at several sites Saturday.

Democrat Leigh Natale, a 65-year-old retired paralegal, waited outside a polling place tent set up in a parking lot south of the Las Vegas Strip. She called Trump “a crazy man” and said his handling of the pandemic “just exacerbated what was already a really horrible administration. ” A Joe Biden supporter, Natale said, ”It’s time we had some forward-looking policies and got back on track in this country. ”

Toward the back of the line, 55-year-old Tom Johnson, a corporate trainer who says he is an unaffiliated voter, was going to vote for the president. “He’s doing better than anybody else could” in fighting the virus, Johnson said.
