The Governor of Nevada is the chief magistrate of the U.S. state of Nevada, the head of the executive department of the state's government and the commander-in-chief of the state's military forces. The governor has a duty to enforce state laws, and the power to either approve or veto bills passed by the Nevada Legislature, to convene the legislature at any time, and, except in cases of treason or impeachment, to grant pardons and reprieves.

The governor has a four-year term. To be elected governor, a person must be at least 25 years old, and must have been a citizen of Nevada for at least two years, at the time of election. The lieutenant governor is not elected on the same ticket as the governor.
