The 2016 United States House of Representatives elections in Nevada will be held on November 8, 2016, to elect the four U.S. Representatives from the state of Nevada, one from each of the state's four congressional districts. The elections will coincide with the 2016 U.S. presidential election, as well as other elections to the House of Representatives, elections to the United States Senate and various state and local elections.

District 4

The 4th Congressional District is a new district that was created as a result of the 2010 Census.[1] Located in the central portion of the state, it includes most of northern Clark County, parts of Douglas and Lyon counties, and all of Esmeralda, Lincoln, Mineral, Nye and White Pine counties. More than four-fifths of the district's population lives in Clark County.

In 2014, Republican Cresent Hardy defeated the Democratic incumbent Representative, Steve Horsford. After the election, Horsford indicated that he might run against Hardy in 2016, but first had to undertake a listening tour of the district to find out why he lost in the 2014 election.[2]
