Officials estimate that 67 percent of Nebraska's voters participated in Tuesday's election.

That means voter turnout fell short of the 71 percent that Secretary of State John Gale predicted beforehand. The Nebraska turnout was smaller than the 71 percent that voted in 2008, but close to the 68 percent turnout the state recorded in the 2004 presidential election.

Voter turnout was highest in Sioux County where 80 percent of the eligible voters cast ballots.

Several other counties all reported turnout figures between 75 percent and 80 percent. Those were: Thomas, Arthur, Grant, Blaine, Logan, McPherson, Garfield, Hamilton, Keya Paha, Banner, Rock, Sherman.

The lowest voter turnout in the state was in Thurston County where just 47 percent voted.
