You know Nevada, it'd be easy for us to throw out some puns like, "Don't GAMBLE with America's future” (not cool), or “What happens at the polls, stays at the polls" (doesn’t make sense), or even "Hoover Dam it feels good to vote" (sorry not sorry). But we would never do that, this election is too important! Here's everything you need to know about Election Day in the Silver State.
