The 2016 United States presidential election in Nebraska was held on November 8, 2016, as part of the 2016 General Election in which all 50 states plus The District of Columbia participated. Nebraska voters chose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote pitting the Republican Party's nominee, businessman Donald Trump, and running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence against Democratic Party nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine.

On May 10, 2016, in the presidential primaries, voters expressed their preferences for the Republican and Libertarian parties' respective nominees for president. Voters expressed their preferences for the Democratic party's nominee via caucus on March 5, 2016. Registered members of each party may only vote in their party's primary, while unaffiliated voters chose any one primary in which to vote.

Donald Trump won the election in Nebraska with 58.7% of the vote. Hillary Clinton received 33.7% of the vote.[1]
