The Nevada lieutenant gubernatorial election of 2010 was held on November 2, 2010 following a primary election on June 8, 2010.[1] Incumbent Republican Brian Krolicki won a solid re-election. Along with Governor-elect Brian Sandoval, elected separately, Krolicki began his second term in January 2011.

The deadline for submission of nominating signatures to qualify for the primary ballot was March 12, 2010. Polls were open from 7:00 am until 7&:00 pm on all elections days. May 18, 2010 was the last day to register as a primary voter. Registration for the general election closed October 3, 2010.[2]

Ben Krolicki for the GOP and Democrat Jessica Sferrazza won their party primaries and sparred for victory in November.

Nevada, along with 16 other states, elects the lt. governor on a separate ticket from the governor in both the primary and general election. If a gubernatorial and a lt. gubernatorial candidate choose to share a ticket and campaign together, as is the case on the third party American Independent ticket, they may do so unofficially.

Following the primary, Jessica Sferrazza represented the Democrats while Republican incumbent Brian K. Krolicki was nominated for a second term. Additionally, Ryan Fitzgibbons ran on a third part ticket.
