(KTIV) -- There were several major elections across Siouxland this year, from electing senators to Washington to choosing representatives for local government bodies. Below are the results of major elections involving Siouxland.

Iowa

Nebraska

In Nebraska, Trump has won. This gives him four of the five electoral votes, since Nebraska is one of two states that permits its electoral votes to be split.

The statewide winner earns two votes, but the other three votes are decided by the winner of the congressional districts. Because President Donald Trump won the statewide vote and two of Nebraska’s three districts, he will receive four Electoral College votes. By beating Trump in the Omaha district, Biden will earn one vote.

Republican Adrian Smith won reelection to U.S. House in Nebraska's 3rd Congressional District defeating Democrat Mark Elworth Jr.

In the 1st Congressional District, Republican Jeff Fortenberry defeated Democratic challenger Kate Bolz.

For the other Senate seat, incumbent Republican Ben Sasse defeated Democrat Chris Janicek.

Also on the ballot in Nebraska were three ballot measures aimed at legalizing gambling at horse tracks in the state. Nebraskans overwhelmingly approved the measures to allow gambling, establish a gaming commision and to tax gambling.
