Nevada's Supreme Court voted Tuesday in favor of certifying the results of the state's general election.

Supreme Court justices met virtually with Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske to review and canvass the outcomes of statewide races.

The decision also binds Nevada's six presidential electors to Joe Biden. The meeting of the electors is scheduled for Monday, Dec. 14.

The next and final step in certifying the results is for Gov. Steve Sisolak to declare the outcomes and issue certificates of election.

"I'd like to thank Nevada's election officials for their dedication to providing a transparent and fair election," Cegavske said in a statement. "I am also thankful to the Supreme Court for allowing us the use of their chambers today and to the Justices for taking the time to participate in the canvass."

A spokesperson for Cegavske's office previously said the Secretary of State serves only a "ministerial role" in certifying elections.
