Early voting begins Monday in Nebraska

Apr 9, 2012

Early voting for Nebraska's May 15th primary election begins Monday.

Redistricting means there are fewer polling places in Douglas and Sarpy counties. Douglas County Election Commissioner Dave Phipps says voters can come to the election commission office and cast an early ballot, pick up a ballot, or request one by mail. 

Sarpy County Election Commissioner Wayne Bena says about 30 percent of registered voters voted early in the 2008 general election. He expects it’ll be higher this election cycle.
