The Nevada Supreme Court on Tuesday unanimously confirmed President-elect Joe Biden’s win in the battleground state, securing him its six electoral votes.
According to The Associated Press, the decision from the seven justices will be sent to Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) for confirmation.
The vote comes in accordance with Nevada state law, which mandates that the Supreme Court meets with the secretary of state on the fourth Tuesday in November to open and canvass the general election vote for various offices. After this, the governor issues proclamations officially declaring winners.

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske (R) presented these results to the court on Tuesday.
The AP reported that more than 77.3 percent of the 1.8 million registered Nevada voters cast ballots this election cycle, including those cast by mail and on Election Day.
