Notes

  1. ^ Because Roosevelt finished ahead of Taft in Nevada as a whole and in every county in the state, all margins give are Wilson minus Roosevelt unless stated in the total for the county in question.
  2. ^ In this county where Debs rather than Roosevelt finished second behind Wilson, margin given is Wilson vote minus Debs vote and percentage margin Wilson percentage minus Debs percentage.
