People From Nevada Are Correcting Everyone Else On How To Actually Pronounce “Nevada” Since, Apparently, We’re Doing It Wrong

“It’s pronounced Nevada, not Nevada.”

Though the presidential race has been called for Joe Biden, many of us won’t forget about Nevada — the state that has basically become a meme for her, um, ~counting pace~.

As America waited for the results of the 2020 presidential election, Nevada had been trending as one of the remaining states counting ballots to finally determine the winner.

But, here’s the thing: People have been talking all about Nevada this week, but apparently, many have been mispronouncing the state’s name, too.

For the past few days — as America waited for election results — Nevadans stepped up to show the rest of us how it’s done:

Nevada will refuse to announce the presidential winner until the entire nation learns how to pronounce our name correctly. Whenever someone says NE-VAH-DUH, we start all over again

After Nevada wins this for us, please, everyone for the love of God, pronounce our state correctly

i bet the people who pronounce nevada nevada are the same ones who pronounce tomato tomato

And while this is news to some:

…others just want to be left alone:

Nevadans waiting for someone to post literally anything so they can tell them that its pronounced Nevada not Nevahduh

And now that the election results are in — and Nevada itself has been called for Biden — some are still poking fun at the fact that they just wanted to know who won the election:

Nevada running in late with their results trying to stay relevant is a nice touch to all this

we were all waiting on nevada and they were probably bitter that pennsylvania took the spot light 😭😭

So, Nevada…thanks for all your effort.
