Nebraska voters to receive early ballot applications

Syracuse Journal-Democrat

Secretary of State Bob Evnen has decided to mail an early ballot application to every registered voter whose county did not already do so. The effect will be every registered voter in Nebraska will receive an early ballot request application in the mail.

“For voters who have concerns about voting at the polls in November, an early ballot request for a mail-in ballot is a good option,” said Secretary of State Bob Evnen. “Anyone who wishes to vote early should request their ballot as soon as possible.”

The first ballots will be mailed out Sept. 28.

The deadline to request an early ballot to be mailed to you is Oct. 23.

USPS recommendation for returning your early ballot by mail is Oct. 27.

The deadline for early voting in person in the County Clerk/Election Commissioner’s

office is Nov. 2.

Voters who requested early ballots must return them to the County Clerk/Election

Commissioner’s office by the close of the polls Nov. 3.

Voters also have the option of going to the polls to vote. The polls will be open for the General Election, Nov. 3. County officials and the Secretary of State are taking precautions to protect the safety of voters and poll workers.
